MAE-East still no generator

Care to explain that last comment?

A Cascade as a port concentrator for customer circuits seems to be
OK - at least from the cost viewpoint (until cisco comes out with
higher port density cards). A Cascade in the middle between your
routers seems to add nothing but $$ & tendency towards bad engineering
practices. (Andrew Partan)
