Well, they weren't floppy *disks* ... they were fish that were flopping around.
We would have been lucky if we had floppies. I had to get up early every morning and catch some fish, bring them back to the computer room, and write 1's or 0's on each fish.

And all your data went bad if the fish suffered from bait rot.

I know a great UDP joke but you might not get it.

Did you say you want to hear the TCP version first?

I had I Tandy 600HD back in the 90's.  It ran Xenix.  I never thought I'd see one again.  It was the coolest lookibg computer I ever owned.  I wish I would have kept it......sigh.

Thanks for the link!  That was really cool.

Seems like some of the messages from DP II are being routed to the wrong room.

Which rooms do they seem to be coming from, from DPII?

Looks like it might just have been topic drift.

*complaint*

IPv4 addresses are 32 bits. THIRTY TWO F***ING BITS.

When someone submits a network support ticket referring to "the .82 server" the guys in my NOC have NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.

323 #@ BITS !!!!!1111

Just wait until IPv6 is finally turned up. You'll get requests like, "the :01fe server." :P

As it so happens, I just turned up IPv6 on Uncensored tonight. You're Soaking In It (tm).


And I don't think Mr. "the .82 server" is going to be the kind of person who ever bothers to know what his IPv6 address is. He's going to let it auto-register with a name service and refer to it by name every time. And since IPv6 eliminates the need for NAT, it's going to work more often than not.

Subject: domain registrars?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]


So ... what's a good domain registrar to use these days? I have two domains expiring in November; one is with NetSol, which is too expensive, and the other is with GoDaddy, who are scumbags, so I'd like to find a new registrar for both of them.

Looking for a registrar that is inexpensive, reliable, and anti-
SOPA. Any suggestions?

I've been using Dotster, http://www.dotster.com/ for one of my domains and haven't had any issues with them. I can't find any information about their stance on SOPA, though:

Dotster it is, then. I'm even going to transfer now, because they will honor the rest of the existing registration period plus add another year free for transferring. Can't argue with that.

Arguably the first and most prominent case regarded GoDaddy.com,
a popular internet domain registrar and web hosting company
which openly supported SOPA. GoDaddy sustained significant losses,
losing over 72,000 domains in less than one week, as a result
of a proposed boycott of their services, pending it renounce its
support of SOPA. GoDaddy has since announced that it "no longer
supports SOPA legislation," then amended that
statement to "GoDaddy OPPOSES SOPA.

They changed their mind.

I suspect that all the other registrars didn't really have a strong opinion on SOPA one way or the other; they just wanted to take the opportunity to dogpile on GoDaddy. And I'm sure GoDaddy didn't "change their mind" so much as they said "oh shit, we've gotta backpedal on this before we lose any more customers"
