So Tony Bates sends out the CIDR report as usual...126.96.36.199 possibly
a bogus route...so I check out RADB...BORK BORK BORK...huh?
descr: The Reasonable Default Route Project
descr: This prefix is one of three which is designed
descr: to accomplish several things. Firstly, ICM
descr: will be offering a set of robust and hardened
descr: default-oriented prefixes which will be made
descr: reliably available to some of AS1800's peers and
descr: things downstream from them. The routing announcements
descr: will be supplemented with a box that sends back
descr: appropriate ICMP messages; at some point we will
descr: also make a view of the default-announcing box's
descr: knowledge of global routing available to folks
descr: who wish to accept the default announcement.
descr: Secondly, this announcement is designed to assist
descr: ANS in the transition away from advisories. We expect
descr: that this will allow people to send in far fewer
descr: advisory updates than is done currently, without
descr: breaking reachability between ANS's customers and
descr: the rest of the world. This is good for both ANS
descr: and everyone else.
descr: BORK BORK BORK FREE THE INTERNET BORK BORK BORK
descr: Thirdly, ICM will be running some experiments on
descr: sheer amount of traffic that follows an ultimate
descr: default, although this must be done without
descr: examining that traffic for content without explicit
descr: permission from the originator. We expect that this
descr: will help serve as a tool to identify and correct
descr: problems in the global routing system.
