Hello Karl:

    I thought one absolute requirement of the EVM was that the equipment
have no network or wireless connections. Not only does the equipment need
to be secure, it also needs to be perceived as secure. A wireless
connection even if just for a time tic (which is a great idea otherwise) has
a perception problem IMHO.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy
