Very cool Phil! I'm glad to see that's available. Hell, it sounded nice even
to me, the non-linux type!
Phil, are you burning something besides 'offerings'? Beware of Linux Geeks
bearing gifts! Iiiieeeee.... Run Away!

It's amusing you mention a 'Sun 1 Router'.... Lets just say in a large

Now, if we can just get you to work on those subject lines..... ;-)
