[Nottingham] NTL Cache Performance Suggestions

Shortly before I go suggest NTL shove their Nottingham caches where the
Sun doesn't shine (they really are /absolutely crap/ at the moment), I
thought I would point out that the Oxford caches are working fine.

For those using NTL, if you are also having unaccepable issues:


There are 5 similarly named caches there and a google search yields the
others around the country - but the Oxford ones are running fine on port
8080 and probably the regular transparent filter on port 80.

I'm sure we could get in to a discussion about how shitty NTL recently
became, but then those of us using it already know this - I figured the
cache alternatives made this worth saying. Either NTL have a much reduced
budget or the one greybeard hacker keeping things moving recently left.
