I'd love to find one like this too.  I sometimes use a 180 MHz Pentium Pro box. 
  But it only has 160M of EDO memory which is hard to scrounge around here, and 
probably can't use modern hard drives effectively due to BIOS limitations.

an excellent idea.  Or maybe add a delay after any read if -k is in effect.

one thread per connection with an active http request, plus the listener/event 
thread who owns all the connections in keepalive.  I believe Paul is saying set 
ThreadsPerChild to 1200 to handle the worst case behavior - 100% of the 
connections are doing real work at some instant and none are in keepalive
