Reflections 1

Recently i read the story about the ping.

Two things amazed me :

How far have we come just in 25 years:
from mere several bytes to hundred of gigabytes running across the huge network of interconnected "modern abacus" all around the globe and not just restricted US army closed computers.

The fact that such a humorous comment made on 10 years ago still is there and is hosted on the oficcial US government machines. Also to note how different the Unix style humour is from what has become the norm MS bussiness style of the net.
