(on the premise of: "network data for two years")

Some republicans have stocks in SAN/NAS/DVD/Hard Drive/etc markets and need a boost?

Around here we're talking about only 70,000 DVD.
I see a way to mirror each pipe into a device capable of compressing it real time to disks and then spew DVD...

But I fail to grasp the scope of the challenge that could be for the big players out there. It would be fun to see some numbers.

Subcriber infos is no big deals, we kept records from day 0. (13 years+)

Thanks Fergie for the entertainment.

U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and FBI Director Robert Mueller on Friday urged telecommunications officials to record their customers' Internet activities, CNET News.com has learned.
