That's an easy one. Leaky toilet - a properly maintained toilet doesn't leak and waste water, no matter what is in the inflow. If you want to drink from your toilet, that's your problem. We offer spam and virus filtering. We block many of the popular worm access ports at the edge and core (which can be a real pain). We offer a CD full of firewall, AV, and anti-spyware programs for the asking. But ultimately, _you_ are responsible for your own systems. -- Jeff Shultz A railfan pulls up to a RR crossing hoping that there will be a train.
