    The IETF.ISOC.INC in Retreat and in Bed With ITU
    by Anonymous on Saturday April 30 2005, @05:56AM (#15037)

    "Since there's been a lot of traffic on this list and not much response
    from me or other IESG members, I thought I'd mention that the IESG has
    just come out of a two day retreat meeting, and is about to go into two
    more days at the ITU-T/IETF workshop. Speaking for myself, I intend to
    catch up on the various threads and respond, but it will take a few
    more days.

    We do intend to produce notes about the retreat meeting, but that will
    also take a few more days. There's also an intent to produce a summary
    report on the ITU/IETF workshop. For anyone who missed the earlier
    announcement, see

    4 Bits - 16 Channels - IPv0 to IPv15

    What channels are available? The 802.11b standard defines a total of 14 frequency channels. The FCC allows channels 1 through 11 within the U.S.; whereas, most of Europe can use channels 1 through 13. In Japan, you have only one choice: channel 14.

    The RIR Shell Game Continues - More MLM Layers

    "Transfer of Authority" ? What Authority ?

    Transfer of Authority to AfriNIC and Joinder to NRO MoU
    27 April 2005

    The NRO is pleased to note AfriNIC's continued progress since it received ICANN recognition as the fifth Regional Internet Registry (RIR) on on April 8, 2005.

    At the AfriNIC-2 meeting (held in Maputo, Mozambique, 26-27 April) APNIC, ARIN, and the RIPE NCC signed letters transferring to AfriNIC formal authority for the parts of the region they had previously served, including all registration and accounting documentation and DNS administration. This now completes the transfer of all custodial and registry processes for the entire AfriNIC service region.

    Also at this meeting, AfriNIC became an official member of the NRO by signing a joinder to the NRO Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). AfriNIC is a welcomed and celebrated addition to the NRO, which now includes all five RIRs.

    From XXX.SONY.PSP "PlayboyStation Portable"
    by Anonymous on Monday May 02 2005, @05:34AM (#15050)
    Playboy Pics to Go on Portable PlayStation: Owners of the new PlayStation Portable handheld video game player can now take adult magazine Playboy on the road with them -- and they don't have to bother with the articles.

    The online arm of Playboy Enterprises Inc. said it will offer photo galleries and videos shot and edited specifically for the PSP.

    Playboy said it has shot a "sci-fi themed" spread of model Amy Cooper that was formatted for viewing on the PSP's wide-angle screen.

    Playboy said "PlayboyStation Portable" is available for free, in the form of two non-nude picture galleries and one free video. Subscribers to Playboy's online service can access premium nude content.

    The company last year created an "iBod" feature formatted for Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod photo digital music player and picture viewer.

    Sony Corp. released the PSP on March 24 in North America, and it sold more than 600,000 units in a week. (AP)

    "Delay in route expension and V6"
    by Anonymous on Monday May 02 2005, @06:35PM (#15060)
    expansion ?

    http://www.bvair.com/ [bvair.com] "Delay in route expension and V6" We are sorry to announce a delay in the start of new routes and the release of version 6 of our software package.

    Someone needs to develop a Virtual IANA Video Game. Just imagine, all of the insiders could sit around all day and slobber as they make sounds like they are flying airplanes and running networks. They could add and remove new TLDs and allocate and deallocate /8s. The real users would be protected on real networks (as they are now) and would not care.

    For those not familiar with Virtual Airlines, the developers take them very seriously. They even have live FAA air traffic control as they fly (virtually) 24x7 around the world. Some people clearly have way too much time on their hands.
