    IP over Avian :)

    Has anyone seen this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IP_over_Avian_Carriers.

    In computer networking, IP over Avian Carriers (IPoAC) is a humorously-intended proposal to carry Internet Protocol (IP) traffic by birds such as homing pigeons.

    It's a rather old aprilfools RFC... There are quite a few more and I expected to see one this year.

    The funny part about it is a few years ago they actually implemented it
