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!

Ahem?  Let's not forget the Solaris Bigots!  ;-)

It's amusing you mention a 'Sun 1 Router'....  Lets just say in a large
company who shall remain nameless, they _still_ have some of those in
production.  And I'll just note, it's amazing how quick you find out they are
using them by knocking out a power cable on one.....  :-/

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