Google Public DNS Analysis

Google’s new Public DNS is interesting. They want to lower DNS latency in hopes of speeding up the web. Awesome IP Address This is the most interesting thing to me. I view IP addresses similar to the way Steve Wozniak views phone numbers, though I don’t collect them like he does phone numbers. [Querying whois.arin.net] […]

Measurement Lab

Google today unwrapped Measurement Lab (M-Lab) which can measure connection speed, run diagnostics and check if your ISP is blocking or throttling things via it’s blog. In general it’s a good idea, but it’s nothing new. Sites like dslreports.com and SpeedTest.net have been measuring speed and providing diagnostics for years. The BitTorrent test however isn’t […]

Postage for Email? My Internet != Your Internet?

There’s been a lot of buzz lately over AOL and Yahoo charging to email their customers. I think this quote most likely will end up being the future: “AOL users will become dissatisfied when they don’t receive the e-mail that they want, and when they complain to the senders, they’ll be told, ‘it’s AOL’s fault,’ […]

Spammer Spot Checking

It’s pretty well known at this time that a rather large sum of Spam comes through regular ISP’s. There is a rather large debate on how to get rid of them. Some ISP’s just ignore it. Some block port 25. But is there a better way? I’m going to propose the following: A random check […]

ISP’s should run BitTorrent Cache’s

I’ve went on a bit about BitTorrent before. And in part is has happened (regarding Mozilla). We at least have torrents on the homepage! Now to send a little messages to ISP’s: BitTorrent could be an ISP’s best friend. Think networking basics for a minute: Staying within the network is faster, and more reliable. If […]

Netscape Desktop Navigator

As mentioned all around the web, Netscape is creating an ISP. In hopes of turing into an ISP/content based brand Netscape the other day released a beta of it’s Netscape Desktop Navigator program. So I decided to give it a quick wirl…. Overall Impressions I found it to be quite useful, but not exactly perfect […]

Did someone leave the lights on?

In case the news hasn’t reached everyone yet, Netscape will update it’s release sometime early this summer, speculated to be based on Mozilla 1.7. Personally, I wonder who will be actually coordinating this update? And secondly, why not wait until Firefox is released, and market it as Netscape 8.0 Light, and make a pro version […]

FBI Attempting to damage Business?

An interesting article via Slashdot, discusses how the FBI decided to shut down an ISP, rather than take specific data, citing it’s more “efficient”. I wonder if someone hosted at a large hosting facility like one of Verio’s, or Sprint, etc. Would they cease the entire facility? Turning off the servers for Fortune 500 companies? […]

New Mozilla.org

As undoubtably, everyone will blog in the next 24 hours… New mozilla.org has been launched. Looks great. Also has a wonderful end user focus. One thing I would do, is make a subdomain for corporate customers. Gear the same information, but corporate advantages (why Mozilla is good for an organization). How to deploy? Security? Updating? […]
