Yes. First, a bridge has no IP address. You can add this, but it makes 
the machine easier to break. Second, this machine runs 24/7, and no 
others do. Going to another machine still leaves hard drives, and adds 
more cost. I'd love to have a solid state machine that is read only, 
aside from something like a CD-R or CD-RW logging tool.
