Re: Didn't microsoft try that?

I agree with your history, jake, but the Beeb are just writing their own code for their own server - they're not (AFAIK) proposing to push it out to millions of end users (although they are making it publicly available for anyone who has the same problems that they face). I imagine (I used to talk to their security bods) that there are numerous other controls protecting the core systems.
