Ok What about Butch? Butch can maybe better define the difference between MT and Star as a router considering Star V3 which has been out for a while now. I see Butch on the Star forums, so I'm assuming he knows both quite well. Star does BGP and bandwidth shaping, it's done bandwidth shaping

I agree. Wind turbines really only produce about 50% of what they claim (even at full wind speed). You will need 4 or 6 of that size wind turbine to keep things running. We had a site that was on a 9500ft mountaintop that showed a 15mph wind average (over the entire year). We put up two 400
