 Subject:  cacheflow ca-610 information (was: Re: [m0n0wall] Nokia IP110 or IP120)
 Date:  Sun, 31 Oct 2004 22:49:08 -0500
I meant to change the subject earlier, and forgot.  I apologize for
any confusion.

I wanted to share the information I had found with the cacheflow
ca-610 product that I had mentioned before in this other thread.  The
information is below in the quoted email.

I took a few pictures.  Some of them came out blurry, I'm not capable
of holding the camera absolutely still.  The pictures can be views at
http://jim.giffords.net/m0n0wall/ca-610/

Anyway, I think I'll shut up about this now.  :)
