Hi all

yonks ago when we (CAIA) were talking to MW about how we could support MW, we 
suggested things like supplying DNS services over wireless.  we can still do 
this I believe  - though I will need to confirm this with the boss - and 
infact still have the equipment set up to do so...

if you can see swinnet (swinburnes hawthorn wifi network) and set yourself up 
for an IP address of - 199 and DNS to you should 
be able to ping ftp.wireless.caia, ws.wireless.caia, gs.wireless.caia and 
dns.wireless.caia  set your browser to no proxy (direct connection) and you 
will see a (sadly out of date) sample webpage...

the point is we can set this up to serve via wireless (out of swinburnes 
wireless network) and also via the internet...

contact me off list if you think this is a posibility...
