([dho] I personally think the above page is silly, confusing multiplexing, asynch, and non-blocking i/o with each other and providing only one really decent reason that threads are evil: because programmers misuse them. Apart from that, it contains very nice links to several potential alternatives.)

  • The C10K Problem, has info on various techniques to handle sockets, and discusses problems when dealing with a very large number: http://www.kegel.com/c10k.html
