And after a few mail sent directly to me, I feel the urge to clear up a 
few things.

- Yes, people play games at Lan-parties
- No, we don't hack stuff at these parties, it's gaming and compos only. 
It's a down-scaled version of "The Gathering" ( http://www.gathering.org 
), and only focuses on the gaming part, we haven't got the people to 
arrange demo/music compos

And yes, the request was serious, will m0n0wall be up for the task? If 
so, what hardware should we go for? (any similar admins out there?)
