How stays a float

Torrent freak has done some digging and found that the Torrent sites are becoming even more popular. is still the most popular (no suprise there), Torrentspy is 2nd and The PirateBay is 3rd. The freak have also followed up on Mininova and done a post about itsServer setup. When I first saw this graph of the Mininova server setup, my first thought was wow, that's really not a complex setup at all. I was expecting at least 5 webservers to deal with the daily load it must get hour. However the servers are pretty good spec /images/emoticons/laugh.gifual AMD Operton's). Generally its not a complex setup and makes me wonder what software is running on each server.
