RE: Whoa; the 3 network?

  • From: Eric Germann

If you're in the process of renumbering, why not renumber into 10/8?  Does
Jane Pauley need her own gloabally routable IP address?  Number of
employees <> number of addresses.  

I suppose if you think about it, ping flooding Tom Brokaw's teleprompter
during the Nightly News would be kind of cool.  Of course, this could be
the spiked eggnog talking too....

Happy Holidays,

Eric
