Yups, smells like a small but very dangerous typo.

>From a netcitizen's perpesctive and as being involved in operating a part
of the internet, I'm starting to dislike this whole experiment more and
more. I understand, as people already commented, the internet in fact is
one big experiment, but this is getting out-of-hand.

Can the people responsible for this please reconsider and put things on
hold until certain conditions are met:

Publish a detailed workplan including AS-es used, windows and risk
analysis to the various mailinglists.

A reasonable time between annoucements and the experiment instead of 24
hours.

Some assurance that input files are checked for typos.

Take another look wether it is smart to use 'production' AS-es for it,
such as the RIS or meeting AS numbers, instead of a seperate set. I think
people are going to get real unhappy if somewhere in October they found
out the meeting network is blocked at various places.

Just my 2 cents,

MarcoH
