War violence ECHELON MI-6 Al-Qaeda hatecrime. There, that'll keep the CIA busy for a while. :D The WAR board is a specialized board that Valemount makes; you can get 'em from www.star-os.com. (Depending on how your network is laid out, you might want to wait another couple weeks until they finish the next revision of the software -- there are reports on the StarOS forums that bridging is more-or-less fried at this time.) WAR boards use an... interesting... processor (the Intel IXP 420, which I'd never even heard of before I first saw these boards), which basically means StarVX (their souped-up version of StarOS for this board) is the only thing you can use them for. WRAPs are widely available from your favorite wireless shop. It's basically a tiny Pentium-233. You get more flexibility in what you can run on a WRAP board (it's a standard x86-type processor, so you can run StarOS, RouterOS, heck, MS-DOS, probably even Windows 95 if you work at it), but there's not nearly as much performance there (it's a general-purpose board with an older processor).
