Already dealt with that at an airport once.  One look at my picture and
his cleared that right up and they put a note in the entry system that
says I am not this guy.  High tech huh.  Sometimes the system works.  By
the way we have different middle initials and different SSNs.

I have an original DDN TAC Access card, installed BBN nodes for the US
Air Force, and worked for quite a few ISPs, and now work for large
global corporation.  Sorry I did not meet you at NSF net, I worked more
on the DoD side of things.

As well you could be, because you appear to have the same name as a
registered sex offender:

I'm surprised that medline.com is offering network access as an ISP?
Admittedly, you began posting to NANOG in 2002 as:

   Network Engineering Manager
   Hosting.com - Chicago

While I was involved in engineering NSFnet and the Internet and was an
"original" member of NANOG, but I don't remember you.  Of course, I'm
notoriously bad with names.

OTOH, I have met, remember, and greatly respect the Tor engineers.
