TKR Cables Channel 20 was in our office today. Scary; we will be on TeeVee.

Better watch out, more reporting to come soon.  I was just called by 3
seperate magazines for a quote about the NSI problems that we have been
having.  The scary part is, 2 of them got my number from my postings on
usenet.  I hope they aren't citing any Joe-Bob CNE they talk to as being
an "Internet Engineer for a major ISP."  Then we are all in big trouble.

Looks like this person has confused Eugene Kashpureff's stunts with

It's things like this that threaten our (as well as the network's)
when read by the 'internet savvy' public.

     There was a good article in the San Jose Mercury News which
     covered both events, but made it pretty clear that experts
     such as some guy from the FBI didn't think there was any real
     connection between them.  Only important thing the article
     missed, IMHO, is that there's already new software out which
     wasn't as susceptible to Kashpureff's idiotic stunt.


     (Where else but Silicon Valley would this be front-page news?)
