If I may be so bold here Michael, the TTL of steel is significantly less 
than so many other datagrams, many due to R.educed U.seable S.urface 
T.ransparancy. You might want to use another datagram media. Perhaps 
platinum BBs, you'd also get an increase in available bandwidth due to 
the weight difference of the media. Of coarse I don't want to spoil your 
2nd, 3rd ... generation upgrade paths.
