WWW FAQs: Where can I find the FAQ on three continents?


2005-09-14: I am often asked, "what are the URLs of servers on three continents that offer the WWW FAQ?"

Answer: there aren't. The WWW FAQ lives here on Boutell.Com, Inc.'s web server, currently in a colocation facility in Texas. A long time ago, there were mirrors on other continents, but that isn't necessary any more. Internet connections around the world have improved greatly over the past decade.

This question comes from a textbook called "Business Data Communications - Introductory Concepts and Techniques." My understanding is that the question has been changed to a more up-to-date one in the latest edition.
