The nature of USENET feeds made this simple to do. As I noted, USENETwas designed to have redundant feeds. Every site could get the newsfrom numerous assets, and if provided an editorial that had already beendelivered, it'd simply decline it. As such, we were capable of builda completely redundant news processing room, and have each system theone in Silicon Valley and the only in Waterloo, Ontario independently feedthe news to the customer. They would accept it from whoever offered itfirst. We were able to switch from one country to an alternate with out ahiccup, and truly now had a system by which either city could benuked and the news would continue to flow. More in this later. During my ownership, we didn't switch to advertisements. There weresome sites with fancy ad sales forces able to run ads and get highCPMs for them for a while, but that was transitory. Only when Googleand Overture came along did a extremely sustainable ad model arrive. Idon't know if it was a right determination or not to wait goodbye.
