Thank you for the thanks guys, much appreciated.
It seems FREESCO is slowly, but surely, going the way of the Dodo, because let's face it, there's no longer a need to run a firewall on a dedicated 24/7 PC with state of the art firewalls build-in most off-the-shelve routers.
But boy, I will sure miss those evenings tinkering with configurations, trying to get software compiled and running on that old, old kernel. But most of all I'll miss the FREESCO community and team. I don't think there are many other projects out there that have/had such a friendly atmosphere on the forum even for newbies. Mostly thanks to *the man* Lightning of course, who was (en is) never too tired or too busy to assist with advice and share his fast knowledge. He's like a pitbull that never gives up and keeps going until the issue is resolved
Also a big "Thank you" to Howler for setting up the FREESCO software repository system and many years of moderating and administrating the forum!
And, lets not forget, all this for FREE (as in free beer), in the true spirit of open source!
My hat's off to all of you.
So long and thanks for all the fish!
Don't worry I'll still come by now and then, and my FREESCO box is still up and running, although on challenging hardware and no longer being my main firewall/router.
