to get your server added to our Content distribution network.
you will need to sync the attachments in the webs that you are CDN'ing - one way is to use rsync and crontab:
*/5 * * * * /usr/local/bin/rsync -ravl /home/twikifork.org/pub/TWiki -e "ssh -i /root/.ssh/starfish.dsa" email@example.com:/home/nextwiki/starfish.nextwiki.org/nextwiki.org/pub/ > /root/starfish.log
