	I think that you are brilliant, since you think the way i do ;-)
my preference is for the dedicated devices - no moving parts, geared to
one task, etc. i've been using lots of Sonicwall stuff with pretty good
success (other than inability to deal with H323 and the need for public
address to do vpn). this time around, the problem is budgetary - if i
don't spend the money on gear, i have a better chance of getting decent
raises for my department. at least you know you are being bothered in a
good cause :-)
thanks, julius
