I recently (May, 2000) gave a talk on
A scalable, fault-tolerant, distributed server architecture for Usenet news
service at the SANE
2000 conference sponsored by NLUUG, USENIX, NLnet Foundation, and maybe
some others. You can find some pictures from the event here.
I've also made available a variety of materials here on this Web site.
Included are the actual slide set that was presented at the conference,
the outline, and some other related stuff.
An abstract (which wasn't included in the
conference materials) is available.
An HTML outline is also available,
which was used to generate the individual slides (but is missing some of
the material which was not part of the outline).
And, finally, if you want to view it in the original format, use a Netscape
browser sized to 1024x768, with menu/tool/location/directory disabled, font
scaling enabled... it looks pretty good even without all that, but it may
require you to scroll a bit. Slide show.
