I might. I am still working on making it reliable. The firewall/bridging 
side is a bit different than the usual firewall/gateway/router. Not to 
mention the range of addresses that are constantly coming from unrelated 
cable traffic, especially DHCP. One thing I am going to try to do is 
create an "internal only" IP address with SSL web server (and attempt to 
somehow make it so the server will not talk to people without the right 
key, though I am not sure if that is possible), with various status 
items (like the UPS status). I have long ways to go to make it "simply 
work" without manual intervention.
