Happy New Years to Everyone! We are back in business and preparing for a new relaunch within the next few weeks for a whole new web site and magazine with expanded streamlined services and information. I got to holiday in Paris and am staying in New York, working closely with Jay and John to finish up the web site. Had a few drinks recently with Leisure Guy over at a Rave in Tribecca. We're beta testing right now with netscape 6 it's quite a problem child for developers, anyone else have any trouble with Flash/Shockwave Plugins with Netscape 6. Any Suggestions would love to hear from all of you. If you got the Flash 4 Plug-in, let me know. We are developing in Flash 4 for backwards compatiability. Will develop the whole site in Flash 4, question do you folks need an HTML version of our new magazine or is FLash 4 ok? Also, if anyone needs web hosting for a gallery please let me know -- we got gallery hosting now for everyone and the space to support it. It's 20mbs and advertising supported and by subscription only. We also have a new email service in beta testing if you need a fast email you can check it out, or contact me and i will set you up with one. Also preparing an events calender for you folks to post your arts events to the global community! Another question for everyone out there, what do you folks think the Bush Administration will mean to the Internet Economony and the arts world as a whole! Anyone got anything they want to announce relating to arts and new media let me know and send it here. Lets get this party started All non-flames will be posted. I don't like flames. Anyone in the NYC got any good parties planned let us, know--John, Jay and Leisure Guy are looking for some cool drinking cronies.

Install Engineering Managers supervise up to ten mid-level Network Engineers in their quest to maintain the highest standard of Quality of Service in the industry. They are also responsible for helping their team apply our strict engineering standards to our customers' networks in order to integrate them into InterNAP's Private Network Access Points (P-NAP's).

Private and public peering arrangements between backbone providers lead not only to congestion at peering points, but also to routing inefficiencies, two factors that significantly reduce the speed of data transmission across the Internet. InterNAP's P-NAP(R) facilities and ASsimilator(R) technology orchestrate the routing of mission-critical data in a faster, more reliable, and more managed fashion than conventional Internet technology.
