Cool Musical commentary from the RIPE meeting :-)
RFC 4824 The Transmission of IP Datagrams over the Semaphore Flag Signaling System (SFSS):
This document specifies IP-SFS, a method for the encapsulation and transmission of IPv4/IPv6 packets over the Semaphore Flag Signaling System (SFSS). The SFSS is an internationally recognized alphabetic communication system based upon the waving of a pair of hand-held flags [JCroft, Wikipedia]. Under the SFSS, each alphabetic character or control signal is indicated by a particular flag pattern, called a Semaphore Flag Signal (SFS).
This is what you get when you tried to play World of Warcraft on a moving bus over 3G haha :-)
If you think Mee Siam Mai Hum is bad, try this:
Had breakfast with Alan Levin, Esther Dyson, Veni Markovski and his wife this morning and Alan reminded us this story that was forward to IPer by Meng Wong last week. I think this has to be retold :-)
First, the boring story on MSM iPod prompts airport scare in Ottawa:
A suspicious package found in an aircraft washroom on a flight from Chicago on Tuesday afternoon brought out Ottawa police canine and bomb-disposal units. A member of the crew found the package about 4 p.m. The plane landed safely and was isolated away from the terminal.
Now, the funny version on World of Warcraft Forum :-)
It all started when I got out of my seat to go to the bathroom. I went to the bathroom, washed my hands, and returned to my seat. A little while later the two stewardesses on the flight crossed each other in the aisle. They had a quick conversation that I was in earshot of.
“I locked off the front lav. There’s something in the toilet that’s preventing it from flushing. Run some water and see if you can clear it.” My face immediately turned red. The seat cover! I thought. It must have been too big to flush! I should have thrown it out!
For all (gamer) men out there who has wifes (or girlfriends) with IKEA addiction.
IKEA is a fully immersive, 3D environmental adventure that allows you to role-play the character of someone who gives a shit about home furnishings. In traversing IKEA, you will experience a meticulously detailed alternate reality filled with garish colors, clear-lacquered birch veneer, and a host of NON-PLAYER CHARACTERS (NPCs) with the glazed looks of the recently anesthetized.
Your goal is to successfully traverse the five awesome worlds of IKEA before your patience runs out. On your first few tries this may seem like an impossible task, but with practice (and this IKEA Walkthrough!) you will soon be able to muster the sense of numb resignation necessary for victory.
Gosh, someone should host this on gamefaqs:-)
