lol, i was going to say time for a new wife... kidding..

| It was functioning as DHCP server, gateway, transparent proxy and web
| filter for a LAN of about 40 PCs.
| It had Etch (when it was still testing) and ran without any problems
| until the hard disk died several months ago.
| The 2 changes I did to that box was to add memory and add a second
| cheapo PCI NIC.
