And I have a whole lot of dialup users that would love to have a static IP so they can more easily run servers and such. Several years ago when our users were staticly addressed, ARIN requested that we move to dynamic addressing. Why do my users have to be dynamically addressed but @home's do not? I do want to let everyone know that I really don't have any problem with @home. They're a business like any other, and I would do the same thing if I had the opportunity. The point here is that we did not have that opportunity, we were forced to use dynamic addressing while @home was basically given enough address space to statically address their users.
