    Is this just for hosting a website? OR can it be used to cache all pages users are browsing. I.e users inside a LAN browsing out to the WWW?
    Also can it pre-fetch? I.e. every hour get the pages users have visited on facebook, youtube, (or whatever changes regularly) and update the cache with the newly added posts or videos.
