manage the servers in the long run and who will be responsible for
keeping them up 24x7 for the years to come. Same for backup system I

Shawn - your thoughts on this? From talking last week, I believe you
were in favour of the firewall and some tape backup. and that you
wanted the 2nd server for failover and load balancing.
