    Just wondering, is there any reason to run (or not run) the built-in software firewall in 10.4.9 if I'm using an Airport Extreme Base Station? The AEBS has a built-in NAT firewall already... If the software firewall isn't needed, I'd probably turn it off...

    you still want to lock down things that you don't need local to the machine. run both, it wouldn't really hurt.
