Wll, that is quite reasonable :')

I was thinking more in line of multiple servers handling subsets of the
total user database. For eample, of there were 20,000 users - splitting
this group into separate realms and each server handles one realm (like;;...). Because they would not be the exact
same users in each database/userfile - it would be a full licenses for each
server. When aggregating 1.8 mil users - this could become quite pricy!

That would be great - some of us may need 24 x 7 - as we're running our NOCs
24 x 7. Plus it would be great to get a response. I have posted a few
times to this list - for example this rather thorny problem I have to solve
by Monday - and never get a response. Even one response that says "don't be
riddiculous - no can do" would be appreciated.

Keep the list posted.
