Sorry Paul, I was talking about local networking, something that does'nt
need transit fee's.... Long term funding? well you buy the equipment and
your on.... and that's it really, the more nodes you add, the better
performance you get...slight different with 802.11b , it being a
broadcast medium, but you can just add another radio card for backbone

My heart bleeds for them... :-))))))))))))))))))))))))

Oh my hearts bleeding again....poor things....how do they cope...,
If i was sitting in telehouse, I wonder how much 512k would cost me?
do you see my point?
