	%ping 126.255.255.255  works for some mutant stacks.
	plays old-hob w/ your arp cache tho.

	but i suspect that the /8 on the reference was either
	a typo from the original query or a vestigal remainder
	from the emacs buffer.

	pinging the indicated /32 gives me this:

$ ping 126.66.0.30
PING 126.66.0.30 (126.66.0.30): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 126.66.0.30: icmp_seq=0 ttl=235 time=311.999 ms
64 bytes from 126.66.0.30: icmp_seq=1 ttl=235 time=443.25 ms
^C
--- 126.66.0.30 ping statistics ---
3 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 33% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 311.999/377.624/443.25 ms
