Hi Paul,

As stated in my last post, I am happy to discuss the technical merits
of BandCon’s products with any individual.    However, I think most
here will concur, this is not the proper platform for such

On a personal note, I have been an active NANOG participant for over
10 years and don’t see that changing anytime soon.
