    That is what I have been thinking of as the "email approach". Where data
    of interest is stored on multiple systems simultaneously. That delivers
    what the Web was designed for in the first place -- survivability
    against any single point of attack. Although I was thinking more in
    terms of defending against server downtime, you (and they) are
    absolutely correct in understanding malicious denial of service as
    exemplifying just such an attack.

    It's Easy. It's Fun. Best of All, it's Free!
