    Went UPS in the end - £30 for a poxy envelope. Still, it got there.

    Surprised the screws are the wrong size, I picked that bag straight out of a UTM "kit" - and (until december) all our UTMs are on the same chassis.

    Any other UTM owners find wrong screws? Do i need to poke our fulfilment partners with a sharp stick?

    oooh what you doing to the UTMs in December Tom? Are you going to make me sad and say mine is old and obselete As for the screws, I vuagly remember two being the wrong size but you only need 2 per ear anyway so its not a problem (plus I had spares if i was).

    I think you should try harder :-)

    Dell chief stuffs data center into suitcase ? The Register

    I'm sure you can beat that - and note, the chap doesn't even use a dell switch!

    John: the rumour mill has another, larger "guardian" box on the horizon for december.. your UTM will still remain "top of the heap" UTMwise for the forseeable, and of course will remain supported for a healthy number of years yet New "SWG" box is from a different source; allowing us to mix and match some components to handle larger loads. At the same time, though, we are introducing more and more software performance enhancements to allow UTM users to grow numbers on the same tin.

    Pah! He's got no firewall, no managed wireless and only a 5 port switch!
