  If they are not being used to browse the web, Squid will not be used
at all. Squid can not be used as a proxy for network games or chat.

  How many of the PCs would be used to browse the web at one time, and
how fast are the stores' connections to the Internet? If the stores'
PCs are all being used to browse the web, this network might benefit
most from having a Squid on a smaller, cheaper PC in every store, with
a parent Squid for every 100 or so stores.
