The sun is not a point source. This is the same reason you get 2 shadows during a solar eclipse. The umbra and penumbra. The probe is 6km above the surface and it's not big enough to completely block the sun at that range, hence the fuzzy shadow.

So when should we expect to see a post on dice jobs for new slashdot server admins. Of all the sites to go down for something like this, Slashdot is the last one I expected.
Send me an email and I'll send you a resume and set up your back end properly. Sheesh
I was going to post nearly the same thing. The other side of Virtualmin is once you have your packages and configs set up the way you want, simply click the backup server button and get a

The BONG! mentioned above pegs it as a 56k modem string
I think the thing being missed here is that people are in a hurry. If I can fly a 747 from Seattle to Japan and the flight takes 14 hours, I would pay more to be able to do it in 7. That's an easy choice. Time spent in the air is generally wasted time. Turn trans-Pacific/Atlantic into a weekend trip instead of the current 3 days of travel time and there's a market for it.
