    Thank you for your offer. After discussions, it seemed 
best that we have physical machines to work with. Vms were 
seen as too remote; we wanted to demystify the entire stack. 
The class topics included networking and hardware familiarity. 
We did not want to expose our networking mistakes to the 
Noisebridge LAN.
