This actually sounds like a really cool idea, I was at this thing called the
Darklight festival a while back and all the speakers were going on about how
this was really catching on in the states. If the telcos and ISP's cant get
their stuff together why not do it yourself and give them the two fingers ?
How much does this gear cost ?

A friend in work showed me this today, and being someone who will jump on
any old bandwagon - shown a carrott. http://dublin.irishwan.org/map.htm
Its not limited to Dublin, I'm just from Lucan so thats why... I wonder how
much the kit costs, I was thinking that we could set up a proxy farm, mp3
and asf storage - nothing illegal of course - I'd love to recover my
stargate asf's coz I accidentally deleted them. At approx 10Mbit, it would
be well fast enough and we could create our own broad band. Personally I am
willing to make a little investment in the kit - as long as its not too
expensive and there is sufficient interest.
What cha think? I know there are a few heads in Lucan -, and there are
already two red spots in the village so we are half way there.
