This remembers me the last meeting that i've had with a NetCache
representative. He said me that Squid versus netcache is like David vs.
Goliath, and Squid doesn't have none to do with netcache

Ummm... like BOFH said: some people remains alive because killing them
is a delict... though!

Could be interesting hear something about this from NLANR... could be
some Kickboxing rounds with the inktomi managers make some effect, or
better a comparison Squid versus XXXXXXX vX.XX <-- Put here some dreaded
cache software name.

P.D: To the people who doesn't know about BOFH stories can make a good
and enjoy reading at under the section 'net humor'
the complete BOFH stories.
