Greg, be nice to Drupal! When has it ever hurt you?

Hey, Rick! I resmble^H^H^H^Hnt that remark:


I used Drupal when I interviewed "the Internet."

Yep, Linux Journal pages load in about 3 seconds for me,
even on this old hardware:

modus@igor:~/OpenVPN$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : AuthenticAMD
cpu family      : 6
model           : 8
model name      : Unknown CPU Type
stepping        : 0
cpu MHz         : 1333.238
cache size      : 256 KB
bogomips        : 2669.33

modus@igor:~/OpenVPN$ cat /proc/meminfo 
MemTotal:      1003340 kB

Hardly a hot-rod. Also, I'm on an 802.11g uplink to a 10/100 Ethernet
sharing a cable modem in a 25-way split (with some QoS in tc scripts.)

I don't see anything to complain about on Linux Journal.
