I doubt everyone has seen the ad and/or noticed it. Instead of just saying their was one can you provide a link to the specific product/service?

comment What are some IT jobs where you don't sit at a desk for 8-10hrs a day?
I don't think the two questions are directly related. Plus this one is far less argumentative.

comment How to build an outbound load balancer with linux?
I wonder if the split on the same source/destination is really an issue though. It is rare for a single web page to be served by a single web server. A view of serverfault.com usually hits at least 10 different addresses (eg ads.stackoverflow.com, ajax.googleapis.com, edge.quantserve.com, l.collective-media.net, pixel.quantserve.com, serverfault.com, sstatic.net, www.google-analytics.com, www.gravatar.com). A single page view would be using both links in practice, it just wouldn't always be balanced.

comment How to build an outbound load balancer with linux?
@kbyrd, RE: caching of routes, it takes both the source and destination address into account. So if two computers from his network visit serverfault.com then possibly they could be served by different links. A single system accessing a single external web site would used a single path though. Depending on the bonding mode selected, your solution with bonding will have the same behavior.

comment Denyhosts vs fail2ban vs iptables- best way to prevent brute force logons?
@Evan, denyhosts does not use iptables (by default). It uses TCP wrappers and updates your /etc/hosts.deny when a system is to be banned.
