Hardware statistics for Kanga.Nu:
Number of lists:
Web traffic is currently sitting at ~140K pages per month (average
12% growth per month):
Average mail load (sorry, this isn't published as it contains email
30K - 40K per hour with the MTA usually idle as shown by:
96% of messages are delivered within 60 seconds of hitting the queue
98% are delivered within the hour

has a little under 1K members. Average posting time for approving a
