Subject: Squid Disinformation

>I read with interest an article in today's UK issue of Network Week about
web-caching. The article included comments from Ed Gordon, Managing
Director of Inktomi (Europe). In particular, when asked whether European
ISPs were ready for more sophisticated caching products, he said:
>"There are some early adopters in Europe, but people have been using
freeware - products like Squid - which doesn't have transparency, or is not
dynamic, scalable or offer the performance"
>As a Squid user since the beginning and a Harvest user before that, this
kind of disinformation really p****s me off.
>Perhaps somebody at NLANR would like to make a response to Network Week, so
newcomers to web caching don't get sucked in by the marketing hype of
commercial cache vendors.
>If anybody who doesn't receive Network Week would like a scanned copy of
the article e-mailing to you, just drop me a line.
