You know Bob, You gave me an idea,
The Linksys 802.11g switch/router/AP is open-sourced to allow Linux Hard-Hat 
kernels in addition to the standard kernel/nucleus from LinkSys/Cisco.

A Hyper-secure FFS-based oBSD AP with Firewall.

On a MIPS R3K/R4K embedded Micro or something.   Hrm...
(Sean googles furiously over a dial-up connection...)
Just a thought.


Now that Theo got the Sparc-based CPUS more secure than IBM Mainframe s390 
Boxen, maybe we need some router devices that prevent access to malicious 
coders from getting into the network.
