Coincidentally, I deal with a FM radio station that's run on an Indian reserve
near here, though I don't actually do computer stuff for them other than hosting
their web page and email.  (It's a very good radio station -- the only one that
I listen to, and it's the only native-owned and -operated radio station in the
province, or so I've been told.)

They recently purchased the exact same fileserver that I have, to put their
music library on.
