    Anon quotes:
    One of the problems is that with a completely open election, it's very very difficult to make sure that it won't be captured by special interests.
    So our only election was captured by anti-democratic Kent Crispin and, if we are to believe him (work with me on this), a sneak attack by the yellow hordes amounting to yet another day that will live in infamy (we'll be out of calendar before we know it).

    OK, I'll bite. Some of what you say actually hits home or at least has, as they used to say in SillyConValley, resonance. So instead of posting all these cryptic screeds (if I don't get some of your more obtuse references I doubt anyone else will, including the future archeologists you seem to be addressing, now that's argumentum ad novitatem, to whose sorry lot is left sifting out these bits), why don't you just cut down on the redundant Postel conspiracy repetitiveness, add some propellerhead details about why I should believe Cisco has built something better than a new.net plugin or something heavy enough to be a boat anchor, create and reroute a premiss to point to a conclusion, submit it as a new ICW article (and therefore not so terribly offtopic), and be done with it. An ability to code selectable HTML links and a slightly more nuanced sense of humour than Mike Roberts would also not be found amiss. -g

    "Cisco has built something better than a new.net"?
    by Anonymous on Wednesday May 25 2005, @05:23AM (#15348)
    "Cisco has built something better than a new.net plugin" ?

    1. Cisco did NOT build the WRT-54G and WRT-54GS.
    2. Cisco did NOT build the WRT-54G and WRT-54GS.
    3. Cisco had to BUY Linksys, Cisco has now gravitated to a typical corporate bloat boat (like ICANN) where nothing gets done except redecorating offices of groupies who **think** they are successful.
    4. Linksys had to BUY the WRT-54G and WRT-54GS from Broadcom.
    5. The software and architecture come from lean and mean guerilla programmers in the jungles of cyberspace. A lap-top, a solar panel and an old
    car battery can power the collective revolution.
    6. The WIFI and WIFI-MAX "community" do not play
    by the same rules that shape the corrupt academic
    government pork-funded mammals that come from
    the shallow end of the gene pool.
    7. The wire-less extraterrestrial community is
    educated well-connected enlightened and able to
    communicate in ways that face-to-face neanderthals,
    like the so-called "ICANN community", can not
    imagine or understand.

    Imagine you are swimming with 6 or 8 dolphins and they are laughing at you. Do you know what they are saying to each other ? Is it their fault that you do not know ? Is it their responsibility to explain to you how their communication system works ?

    What is the Most Valuable Bit-String in the World?
    by Anonymous on Wednesday May 25 2005, @05:51AM (#15351)
    What is the Most Valuable Bit-String in the World?

    Some may claim it is the bit-string that Microsoft
    uses to sign (encode/encrypt) DVD games for the
    XBox.

    If that is the case, where is that Bit-String
    stored ?

    Are there multiple copies in several locations ?

    Who has access to that Bit-String ?

    How does Microsoft keep that Bit-String from
    becoming public knowledge ?

    How long is the Bit-String ?

    Is it one Bit-String or several ?

    When you "buy" (re-register) your valuable .COM
    name, where will your unique Bit-String be stored
    that indicates that **you** are really the owner?

    Will it be stored in an NVRAM in a small box
    powered by 12volts and connected via a wireless
    link from a yacht floating off the coast of
    California ?

    Will there be several small boxes locked in
    colos in major cities around the world ?
    Will they each have verified copies of the
    bit-strings ?

    Will selling a .COM name result in physicaly
    turning over those blue-boxes ?

    Will the judge be impressed when you walk into
    court and face-to-face present the 8 boxes
    imported from places around the world ?
    [Will lawyers love the theatre of it all and
    thrive on the costs of making that case?]

    "add some propellerhead details"
    by Anonymous on Wednesday May 25 2005, @09:25AM (#15356)
    You have to have the units with the 16 Meg RAM
    table to do the prefix filtering.

    2 to the 24th is 16 meg

    One could use one byte of filter control per /24

    The software works with one bit to allow /27 filtering
    0-0utside
    1-1nside
    Can you remember if 0 is Outside ? 1utside.
    1 is 1nside not 0nside.

    Remember, the shower curtain goes inside the tub
    to keep the water from going out on the floor.
    Can you memorize that ?
