	and the Internet Numbering resource fees, the cross connects, power,
	spares, ...  and if you tak in money,  insurance, taxes, accounting,
	sys-admin costs (unless this is best-effort service that yu can 
	"fire & forget" or your paying clients don't care when you are down 
	for three weeks - looking for replacement kit and the time to configure
	it -after- your homework is done...)

	But this song isnt about Alice...
