   I really don't want to jump in here, but I can't help myself.  You 
are clearly doing something wrong.  I run a whole lot more than that, 
for a whole lot more people, on way less than 5mins per month of 
maintenance.  If things are set up properly in the first place, they 
require minimal maintenance.

   Maybe it's just that I gained and honed these skills in the early ISP 
world, where doing things slowly and methodically is a good way to go 

   Just sayin'.

   Now back to your regularly-scheduled argument.
