and make sure to include any past IRCop experience they may have had as
well as why you chose them.

Section 4: Supplementary Files

Please attach to this application 1 traceroute and 2 sets of ping
results from your machine to each of the current SorceryNet client
servers and hubs. Note that you will need to speak to admins of the
current dedicated hubs to get an IP/hostname to traceroute to, as the
* names of our dedicated hubs are redirected to the pools.

The traceroute may be done at any time of day. For the pings, you should
use 100 1024 byte packets (ping -s 1024 -c 100). To give a valid
overview of your connectivity to our other servers, the pings should be
done at two different times of day, within an hour of 12pm GMT, 8pm GMT,
or 2am GMT.

When you submit your application, please be sure that you have 1
traceroute and 2 ping set to each server. Please collect the results and
send them all at once. Please also include ONLY the summary results for
pings (ping -q). Applications without all of this information will not
be accepted. Applications which contain icmp_seq's will not be processed
until they are removed.
