About two weeks ago, I lost two amd-32 servers and replaced them with =20
amd-64 and am running off the old disks beautifully, and much, much =20
faster.  I have over 500 ports on both.  One was and is running up to =20
date Stable and the other up to date Current.  I was planning on going =20
to AMD64 but with the current results, I really doubt that I will make =20
the change until well after the current 7.0 release.

I made this decision based on recommendations made on this list a few =20
days ago.  You might want to search the mailing lists if you need more =20
assurance and if no just enjoy the AMD64.  I'm happy with their =20
performance and price.

enjoy,
