I deal with the DAT distribution problem by using a Windows DFS Share. I created a DFS Share which replicates to each office, then Mcafee dumps the DAT and other files onto the DFS Share. Windows then does the differencing using RDC (Remote Differential Compression). The workstations are setup to use a secondary repository which points to the DFS share.

Doing it this way means I don't have hundreds of computers pulling their DATs over the WAN and there is less to send over the WAN because of RDC.

I agree that Mcafee should do something about this, but I have found this to be the best method of DAT distribution at this time.

I have been known to throw my blackberry curve across the room when it wakes me up on Sunday morning. It still works as well as the day I got it. It also has 3x the battery life of my Motorola Milestone. (Yes I have two phones, Work and Personal).

There are not very many phones with the battery life, durability, and functionality of my blackberry.

Well, the Chevy Volt has about 40 miles of range on the batteries. They did this because most people drive less than 40 miles on a typical day, that would cut your 7.5 kw down to 5 kw. Not sure how to trim it down more, maybe lighter vehicles than you used in your calculation?
