I'm fading...  Catch ya on the flipside (which is actually today,

Nathan,  I know you're usually tied up on Sundays...  Any objection if we
continue if you aren't free to join in?

I'd also like to encourage somebody that knows more about Net security than
I do, to pipe in anytime now.  That would be 'bout anybody that knows
anything on the subject...!  I'm not sure some people are hearing this
correctly...  I slowly gave up on the notion of false humility, after I lost
my job as dept head to someone a lot more inept than I was.  (He was fired
about a year later.)  Sure, I can still be plenty humble..  But it is NO
false humility, to say that there are plenty of folks out there who know Net
security better than I do.  I know what a DMZ is, from IGNITe, and what a
router is, but not really what it does, precisely.  My understanding is that
the hackers already are (or maybe soon will be?) attacking the router OS
code.  Of course, that's not specific to 400s, but it effects 400s getting
put out on the Net.

I know that the folks from PentaSafe were having their office party tonight
(last night)...  Maybe they missed the memo about this meeting...  LOL...!

Maybe weekends aren't the best times for some, but for others it may be...
