    Yahoo Problem?!?...

    Being clairvoyant is a curse... Yahoo! Servers are crunching at 110% most of the time...

    Timing can be a problem in that the connections may time-out prior to locating the desired URL or website, or a nice little place the message can find a home...

    Considering storage drives, most are circular... This means when they are brand spankin new, the data is stored very close to the center, or the core... This data is retreivable almost instantaneously...

    As data is accumulated, it is stored concentrically towards the outter edges... Similar to the life lines apparent on the cross-section of a tree...

    What does this mean...? It means as you accumulated data, the further it gets out on the disc, the more time it takes to retrieve... Sometimes the Disc cannot seek and deliver adequate space before the task times out...

    This is a dilemma for Yahoo! and although they want to keep the public happy, at some point the maintenance is simply going to cost too much... It's coming...

    Even as I hit post on this message, the likely hood of it finding a place on Track 4.651 Gillion is a poke and hope... If I don't get the "Can't find URL" message, I will be very surprised...
