:)  I understand.  Hopefully someone has a reasonably efficient pf or  
ipfw based solution.  If it cuts some of the microsoft traffic that I  
am seeing much more of recently, I won't complain either. I have tried  
to control them by ip's and but domain names with limited success.   
Too many windows boxes at the office.

have a great day,
