it fits better with the tinkering nature of the club. AD is something
that's easy to fuck up when you have too many chefs in the kitchen.

The subtle undertone was there about my reservations about AD :). That
said, a windows server probably _is_ something the club wants, so I'm
planning on building that all the same.
