1) Get a managed switch
2) Configure all ports but one to be on their own VLANs
3) Configure one port to be a trunk port
4) Configure your laptop or other computing device to support trunking
5) Configure your virtual machine so the entire process is scripted. It should boot, execute the upgrade procedure, and then provide logging for the process to you.
6) Start VMs, with each configured on one of the VLANs.

Done.

Not worth the trouble. Load is low because my script makes 1 http get request per second. If *everyone* is trying to mirror, it could be a problem depending on the hardware running the site. I'd much rather just finish up under the radar and get it into archive.org without any headaches.

Using the above bookmarklet will archive the entire page in the Internet Archive immediately (timestamped by the Internet Archive). The Internet Archive crawler respects robots.txt, but it doesn't appear the Flickr robots.txt file will prevent you from using this method.

GoGo is provided by a company called Aircell, out of Itasca, IL. They rely on a network of ~400 AT&T cell tower locations to provide connectivity (its all interconnected over MPLS). Row 44 is a competitor, and they use satellite connectivity, and hence can provide coverage over the ocean or international countries.

Not all relevant info, but thought I'd throw it out there.
