Re: the original thirteen NSFNET regionals

He's over at @Home, selling IP to the masses.

I was wondering when someone was going to bring up 
NSI, since when I started there in 1992 it was called
a "regional".

I never could figure out how a network reaching not
only accross the US, but to Greenland, Alaska, Antarctica,
Australia, New Zeland, Great Brittain, etc, could be 
called "regional".

Of course, that was before the PPP link to the Space 
Shuttle. Oh, and that South Pole thing...  :^>

Those were great times. Never knew what the next project
was going to be.

"Get reliable service to Moscow." Gee, I thought the 
South Pole was hard...
