Hi Paul,

I'm reposting to the list because of an issue you raised,

Even a 56k dial up modem is capable of relaying a single stream.

the big fat pipes can do more, but every little bit helps if it's left

You may of course have other reasons why this isn't a good idea for you.

I'll add your email to my list and I'll be in touch in a couple of weeks
once I've progressed the concept further.

help with, I'd love to volunteer.

"I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The
greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of
crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in
concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its
final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved,
seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed
and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars
and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need
to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol
for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state
or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern."
