Isky: Judging by the port range, if I had to make a wild guess I'd say
you'd like these open and mapped to an internal IP in order run a Valve
based game server.

Not to jump to any conclusions or anything with your possible intentions
here, but as a member of Noisebridge, I'm asking you kindly to please
not use our resources to run game servers on the wide internet.

Noisebridge's vision is to maintain a space which provides technical
resources for creative projects. Playing board games with friends in the
space, as much as it has nothing to do with creative projects or
anything all that technical, builds community in the space. LAN parties
at Noisebridge is pushing that line for me. I would be extremely
impressed if you could provide to me some good examples on how running a
Counter Strike server through our connection to the internet would be
inline with the goals of our space.

If you'd like the ports mapped somewhere for a different reason, then
please ignore everything I've said thus far. Thanks for listening to my
hypothetical finger pointing 2¢.
