IPv4 Headers Investigated 347

An anonymous reader writes "New security measures are being suggested (see RFC 3514) for the IPv4 header. The measures include a bit that can be set and unset according to whether the packet is secure or not. Due to the important security implications, anyone coding client/server internet applications might want to take a look."

    Slashdot on April Fool's Day is just about as funny as passing a kidney stone.

    To all those humorless dicks who complain about how this is the fifth dupe of this article: RENT A SENSE OF HUMOR.

    What is the thing that we bitch most about? Dupes. What are the /. crowd doing? Posting dupes. Duh.

    It's quite funny but it ceases to be funny if it needs to be explained. So just go away and don't read /. today, k? thx!

    "This is the fourth time I have seen this story.

    It is getting less and less funny."

    Perhaps if y'all didn't act like Slashdot commited a mortal sin whenever the occasional dupe occured, Taco wouldn't have found this joke so amusing. Mmmm?

    Frankly I think it's hilarious. I hope you all have learned a lesson now. Stop bitching about story dupes or this joke'll be around next year too.

    Jokes are supposed to be funny.

    Different people have different sense of humor. You are not a true slashgeek if you don't find these intentional quadrupes funny... kinda like a self-parody of Slash... ;-)

    Personnally, I find this year's April fool's much better then previous years', when most stories were just senseless drivel. This year's stories are believable enough that people could fall for them (just watch some of the comments that think this quadrupe was unintentional. In my book, that's falling for it. Of course some of these comments might just have pretended to be falling for it, in order to take in people like me ;-). And there's still enough serious stories there that people cannot just blindly assume everything is a hoax either.

    Fuck you! It was the only joke I could remember. You try remembering more than one joke after you've crammed your head with the text of every single Dr. Who episode, the script of every Star Trek episode, all installments of Star Wars, and have memorized the title and opening sequence bits for all of the Simpsons.

The Macintosh is Xerox technology at its best.
