Are you going to provide consulting services -- for free -- when nobody can do anything because the swarms of windows PCs that are being burgled via worms propogating via SMB all start doing DDoS attacks? Or even, when the numbers of them climb to the point where simply their automnated scans for new victims succeed in melting down your net? If doing WIndows filesharing over the internet is the only job this grand toy is here for, and it's so critical that you're willing to sacrifice the whole thing to try and keep it limping along as long as possible, then I suppose your stance makes some kind of sense. Somehow I find that hard to believe. Are you just trolling? -Bennett
