So, just to be clear, this functionality for drainstopping will be available when your new release is ready? You would then just set the max connections to zero and pen will continue to allow "sticky" IP's to connect, but not connect any new IP's?

In your experience, would a 350 MHz P2 w/128MB RAM be capable of handling 500,000 hits per day?
