True,

When ive setup a shoutcast server up it seemed ok and the speeds seem to be fast.

But ive noticed when you enable the "IRC" ports within your manager that it still doesnt seem to allow irc servers from the outside to connect,

You will only notice a slightly higher latency compared to the servers being in the UK. I am in Middlesbrough on the Virgin Media network and I see pings of 38ms to my server. More than perfect if you ask me, especially for gaming. From Texas USA, I see 132ms solid to my OVH server.

I'd find it quite interesting to see what a corridor of kimsufi servers looks like. However if you'd rather not in the interests or security or if your cabling is less than tidy and donít really want to then itís no problem..

Iīd also love to see how the Data Center is laid out also. Although I work in a Data Center day in and day out, it is always nice to see the working environment of other Administrators!
