    what's so impressive about 80 packets/second?

    what's so impressive about 80 packets/second?

    80 pps PER USER times 8 users in a game is
    a large number of packets being exchanged
    between all of the users, especially the one
    hosting the game

    If third-world countries like Europe PAY $$$ to
    be connected to The Big Island, then they will
    be able to connect and play. There is currently
    not enough money to buy band-width because the
    Laws of Physics would have to be re-worked

    How does the IETF.ISOC plan to re-work the
    Laws of Physics ? with IPv6 ? with packet
    headers that start at TWICE the size of IPv4
    just to get started

    IPv6 claims their Killer AP is IM - Instant
    Messenger, the Telnet of the NGN

    "to the rest of the world, the US government is a foreign government."

    Without the U.S. Government, there is no ICANN.
    Vinton Cerf, the Dictator of ICANN, is an former
    U.S. Government purchasing agent. He developed a
    network of cronies by spreading DARPA and DOD
    money around. He now spreads the money around from
    the TLDs developed during the Postel regime.
    Postel was of course funded with DARPA/DOD money.

    Follow the money. As one example, the .ORG money
    flows to the ISOC, which Vinton Cerf founded.
    The ISOC funds the IETF and you will not see
    technology come from there that changes the
    funding arrangement. What you see is spin and
    growing budgets and more and more people living
    off the .NET welfare state. They call that
    their "community".
