Hey All,

I read up on using the apache benchmark (ab) tool, and I found quite a surprise, I seem to be having some issues with request failing due to length.

Code:
root@girls [/etc/apache2]# ab -c 1 -n 10 www.girls-on-bikes.com/
This is ApacheBench, Version 2.0.41-dev <$Revision: 1.141 $> apache-2.0
