Agreed.
We all know Tom's trying his best.

Don't forget:

Each router PC will require several high speed network cards.

Good luck Tom.

Why don't you delete all the old unused/locked topics like NGBT and things to save some BW?

Because those topics only take up hard drive space. Unless every single freakin' NG user is loading that topic every day, it's not doing much bandwidth harm, now is it? Nowhere near as much as how many people load Ganguro Girl every day, for example.

I appreciate the research you've been doing into this. I think I speak for most of NG (well, at least for myself, anyway...) when I say that I'm glad you're keeping costs down rather than passing the expenses on to NG users in the form of a subscription fee.

Unfortunately, due to a policy change by our provider, we can no longer just hook our machines directly into their pipe - we need to use a router as the go-between. My initial pricing of a router to fit our needs was $7k, but further talks with tech folk made it apparent that we would need something much more heavy duty for NG bandwidth... We're talking more than a new BMW.

***What bandwidth are we talking about? That seems way high. T3 Bandwidth? Are you bringing BGP into the enterprise? What type of policies do you need to run on the router? You can get Cisco routers way cheap now... just check out Ebay. I have a hard time believing you would need something as robust as a Cisco 7500 or 12000 series

HOLY CRAP. I had no idea that routers could cost that much... I mean $7k is bad enough, but more than a new beamer?!?! Damn... That thing better be powerful for a price like that...
