thats harsh, because before i used a cheaper Mitsubishi, forgot the
Model, but before Christmas i purchased a Cisco ws-c2960-48tt-l ,
which i thought was not too bad for what i needed. I just cant
replace it easily now. Really, is that it? Im gonna have to go with
the cronjob / shell script option?
