Quote of the day comes from Microsoft's NT 3.5x and 4.0 TCP/IP documentation:

"CAUTION: The Windows NT TCP/IP implementation is largely self tuning. Adjusting registry parameters without careful study may adversely affect system performance."

Yeah, "adversely" apparently means it might actually work! Right now I'm trying to figure out why it insists on recycling an open socket after the time specified by the obscure TcpTimedWaitDelay registry entry. What does NT require me to tweak that every other socket implementation in the universe doesn't? Sigh...
