Hello, aurakle.

Berkeley did a great job with the FreeDb and much to promote OpenSource in general, hasn't it?

:flowers: to our humble sharing-grounds. :thumbsup:

Where would any of us be without back in the days of old... ?

In fact it seems like yesterday, a fix was found for a problem infection
that troubled us.

Probably will tomorrow, too.

The beauty of many people striving to provide
answers to problems we all maight be dealing with.

Another reason I like OpenSource.
Philosophically & practically based on
a solid foundation.

Provides the better good for the largest amount of users.

Therefore, I thank you for any and all work you were involved in at Berkeley CS Dept. :thumbsup:

Yeah...those great old days are good old days. I remember it was only 2 flavors
of Unix that was BSD and AT&T version. The only worm I truly respect was
the internet worm launch by an unhappy ph.d candidate @ the U. Michigan in 1988. Now that was scary! It was alot nicer then....there were unspoken rules
where you had to practically beg someone to be in research talk mailing lists.
There was so much respect for it. But again...that was the only threat to
the tcp/ip layer was the internet worm. Hey...it will the only communications up
and running after WWWIII! From the ftp to gopher to http! Ftp still rules!
