I don't think my line is capable of that rate.  I think I can currently 
push only about 1.5 Mbps peak.  Clearly webalizer is misreporting.

It's nothing but an inexpensive Athlon 3000+ with a pair of SATA hard 
drives in a software RAID 1 configuration, running a few virtual 
servers, behind a cheap wireless router configured to forward certain 
ports.  Load rarely goes above 0.1.  The biggest bandwidth consumer is a 
bunch of static media files; my sister makes digital video and puts it 
on the site.

I can't see any errors.
