Collaborating with artists from Tsunamii.Net, Fragnetics was the technical team tasked to set up the computers used for the Alpha 3.5 Crush project, where an online webserver (188.8.131.52) was crushed in the presence of a live online and offline audience at the Millbank Gallery in London, UK. Visitors were able to take a peek at the server through an Axis webcam configured specially for the event as a countdown timer ticked away the seconds towards the end of the Crush server's 5-day online life which ended on 12 September 2002. A total of 72,355 visits were logged. More than 2,000 people were present online while a group of about 30 were at the gallery itself to witness the event live.
