And the fact that they don't charge cross connect fees; I just got back from
touring Equinix/S&D.  Plant's nice enough, especially if you need -48v...

but the cross-connect charges definitely put you in the "are you shopping
the right category of data center" picture: $500 setup, $225 for coax/325 for
fiber.  For an empty cable.  Yeah, I know, I know; being surprised at the
magnitude of that means this really is my first rodeo.  It had to happen
some time.  :-)
