If your company already has Internet access, the solution can be as cheap as=
 an old Mac Classic, and an ethernet connector, some shareware=
 software...end of story. Total cost about $700 if you dont already have the=
 Mac. This would be enough for a dedicated server. Use Phil Zimmerman's PGP=

 standards and off you go! No need to buy another modem or buy into BBS=
 software, and no need for our expensive long-distance calls. If anyone=
 wants to know where to get PGP, I can point you to the appropriate WWW home=
 page.......... at a price! My consultancy fee is one beer, payable when you=

 that I collected in advance on your behalf at the last 3 NAB Alpha Image=
 parties. Thanks M.C.
