You do realize that article is over a year old don't you? That would
be based around Tomcat 4.X and there have been leaps and bounds in
perfomance with 5.0 and 5.5 so Tomcat should fare even better than it
did back then.

However I would be surprised if were using the Apache
webserver and looking at Netcraft it looks like they are, no idea what
connectors they are using though.
