    Which sounds alot like efnet a year ago, as well as a few other irc nets
    in the more recent future, let alone the internet now and recent past.
    Which poor english ISP was it that was recently DDOSed into non-existance?

    The WMD's of the internet exist, and have been deployed and used to
    varying extents already in limited formats. The wakeup call comes when
    rather then a small DDOS affecting only one or two, a major DDOS is
    launched that takes down large sections of the internet for extended
    periods while the child that launched them is out mowing lawns for his/her
    next stratedgy planning pizza...unless of course we give into the folks at
    RIAA./DCMA and legalize all this crap for the select few<shrug> (in texas,
    right, certainly not those in utah)...

    Thanks,

    OK, so you're a Ph.D. Just don't touch anything.
