Thanks for the share Dev. Have to re-evaluate some remote hub plans 
then. Tough to lose equipment, seemed quite flammable from the report.

Major concern on the CDN issue and if/how it could affect the quality of 
the remote participation. It is applicable. Is there more technical 
information with respect to this?
