Don't bank on. I /guarantee/ that he will be back very shortly with one
of two follow ups.

1 - he asks a solution to an even more obscure (possibly dumb)

2 - he "solves" his own requirement in a way which involves a wierd
network configuration and/or some incredibly peculiar scripting and
posts it here.

He usually does.
