IP over Carrier Pigeon

IP over Avian Carriers. The Y10K bug. Telnet's RANDOMLY-LOSE Option. The Null Encryption Algorithm. The Etymology of "Foo." SONET to Sonnet Translation. The Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol. The Infinite Monkey Protocol Suite.

Network technology experts Peter Salus and Thomas Limoncelli have compiled the best of the Internet Engineering Task Force specs into one volume, "The Complete April Fools' Day RFCs, " which I've just pre-ordered. You'll probably want to order it too.

(The publication date is listed as April 28. It's not yet available from Amazon or many other online resellers, but you can get in line now at Barnes & Noble.)
