Gr8 idea. OK, so you sold me -- Step 1, is complete: We've got the
domain name (OSFlash.tv). (Damn, those .TV addresses are expensive,
btw!) I love the eat-your-own-dog-food approach. Some questions:

Based on the list above, the biggest cost here looks like it would be
*bandwidth* rather than the dedicated server costs. I am assuming that
to do this right, we are going to need at least 100mbps dedicated
bandwidth which, from a quick look in the net doesn't come cheap ( >
$1,000/month ). Thoughts?
