I have a device at home which you could call an "ADSL router". It sits
between my ADSL modem and my PC. It has two ethernet ports, a 50MHz
PPC CPU and 32MByte of DRAM. It runs Erlang R9C to do some port
forwarding, act as an HTTP proxy, an FTP proxy, a dynamic DNS client
and to re-login to ADSL whenever my ISP kicks me out.

Right now, the Erlang VM has RSS = 4556kByte.
