    Fort N.O.C.'s

    ANYTOWN, Va. - The “heart” of the Internet, the so-called “A” root that is the Internet’s master addressing computer, resides here on the third floor of a nondescript four story building, housed in massive flat-black aluminum cage that looks like it could double as a gym locker for a mountain troll.
    Just an interesting article about the "inner workings" of the internet.

    I can't believe I forgot that!!

    Wow volunteer work is keeping one of America's most valuable assest up and running. That is a little scary:

    The root server operators “have no contract with anyone, no guarantee of level of service, they could turn [the root servers] off tomorrow with no consequences at all because they are doing it out of the kindness of their heart,”
    You shall no longer take things at second or third hand,
    nor look through the eyes of the dead...You shall listen to all
    sides and filter them for your self.
