I provide wireless / ethernet network  access to several people who do who
knows what on my connection I want to plug a filter between my internet and
all of us I don't care necessarily what they do thats their business I just
don't want to get attention from it.  So something like this will be highly
anticipated.  I was actually looking at the memory footprint of Peerblock on
one of my machines... yeah its pretty painful for memory.  Its looking more
and more like its going to be a pfsense box for me in the mean time.
