    Three Fingers - Read Between the Lines
    by Anonymous on Tuesday April 19 2005, @02:57PM (#14940)
    About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Jews had to leave Rome. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Jewish community. So the Pope made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Jewish community. If the Jew won, the Jews could stay. If the Pope won, the Jews would leave. The Jews realized that they had no choice. So they picked a middle aged man named Moishe to represent them. Moishe asked for one addition to the debate. To make it more interesting, neither side would be allowed to talk. The Pope agreed.

    The day of the great debate came. Moishe and the Pope sat opposite each other for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. Moishe looked back at him and raised one finger. The Pope waved his fingers in a circle around his head. Moishe pointed to the ground where he sat. The Pope pulled out a wafer and a glass of wine. Moishe pulled out an apple. The Pope stood up and said, "I give up. This man is too good. The Jews can stay."

    An hour later, the cardinals were all around the Pope asking him what had happened. The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground and showing that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us from our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of original sins. He had an answer for everything. What could I do ?"

    Meanwhile, the Jewish community had crowded around Moishe. "What happened ?" they asked.

    "Well," said Moishe, "First he said to me that the Jews had three days to get out of here. I told him that not one of us was leaving. Then he told me that this whole city would be cleared of Jews. I let him know that we were staying right here."

    "Yes, yes, and then?" asked the crowd.

    "I don't know," said Moishe, "He took out his lunch, and I took out mine."

    Don't Tell Anyone "The global deployment of
    by Anonymous on Tuesday April 19 2005, @05:09PM (#14941)
    Don't Tell Anyone "The global deployment of IPv6 is underway".

    http://ops.ietf.org/lists/v6ops/v6ops.2005/msg0026 0.html
    "The global deployment of IPv6 is underway, creating an IPv4/IPv6 Internet consisting of IPv4-only, IPv6-only, IPv6-dominant (e.g., IPv6 networks that also use IPv4 internally but offer restricted or no IPv4 services to client networks) and IPv4/IPv6 networks and nodes. This deployment must be properly handled to avoid the division of the Internet into separate IPv4 and IPv6 networks while ensuring addressing and connectivity for all IPv4 and IPv6 nodes."

    What a mess this will be for the new Pope.
