  our advertisements of the sigcomm conference (today, vint cerf ++ 's 
  tutorial on the technical history of the internet) seems to be 
  intermittment in sdr, so here are the numbers if anyone wants to
  join it by hand this is what ps says on the broadcasting machine:
  vat -f pcm2 -r -I 3 -t 127
  vic -t 127 -I 3
  wb -t 127
  our original advertisement from uc santa barbara used dvi2 as
  format, but we couldnt see it when we started broadcasting so
  we used the local backup which was set to use pcm2 format.
  i think vat adapts.
