Do something like mac addresses? so you can identify a computer rather than the person?
make them log into a wan or something even?
Sure, that'd be a great method - wouldn't stop them completely though as
they could always establish a new account under a false or someone elses

IANAL (uses new catch phrase)
Why not supply ALL the customers details (or as much as known) in a (forced
lower case) MD5SUM. Generaly they would not use the same username.
If the telcos suplying DSL/other would take advice from the ISPs that the
particular user was troublesome or breached a commonly agreed to T&C they
would get their delivery method (what ever it may be) terminated. Having for
instance your DSL line choped of, even for a month or two, would have a huge

It appears to me that TelstraClear seems to have fallen off APE
about 1:15 this morning and are still not there at 3:00.
I can't ping the ip address 184.108.40.206 nor 220.127.116.11.
since someone just asked,
last year the streams were in addition to the webcams. The webcams were
averaging 500+ users all day and the streams carried a similar volume.
overall we were shifting 130mbps. The video streams are NOT the webcams.
They use mixers, cameras, lights etc like a tv production. The webcams are
little things bolted to flimsy bits of buildings in high places. (why is it
always like that?)

They can't figure it out ?
The "Search" button in the latest version of Internet Explorer (and
probably older versions too) takes you there when you use "Find a Web
Page". It also happens if you try to search from the address bar. (EG enter
something that isn't a URL)
Maybe their webdesigners should keep in touch with the IE development team ? :p
Perhaps the Microsoft people that are trying to test the problem aren't in
an area that gets redirected to "search.msn.co.nz". I'm not sure what
method it uses to determine if you're in NZ, perhaps not everyone in NZ is
considered to be "in NZ" by IE, and thus doesn't get directed to the NZ
version of that page...
(But browsing directly to the URL as Craig first indicated should be
visible anywhere I would have thought...)
Remember a while ago I posted a message here, saying I wanted to return to
Well it all turned out for the best.
As of yesterday afternoon I no longer work for Juniper Networks. And in mid
April I'll be starting at a new job in Wellington.
So just a quick FAQ
Q: I have a cellphone number for you is it still going to work.
A: Nope - all my Juniper goods were confiscated yesterday. I do have a
prepay cellphone in Australia at the moment, but after next month that will
be useless too. If you think you will need to contact me in that time
period, then drop me an email asking for the number.
Q: Who do I call at 3 in the morning to ask about Juniper questions?
A: Well if you happen to work for the company that I've just joined, then
probably still me =) If not, and it's still urgent, then
support(a)juniper.net is your friend.
*note* I do still answer questions for beer or curry, just not at 3am
Q: When do you arrive? What are your plans?
A: I fly in on the 11th of Apr to start work on the 14th. I have to find a
place to live. Other than that, I plan to eat curry on a thursday as is
written in the good book =)
Q: What are you doing in the meantime
A: Packing mostly. I also have a pilots test to sit if the weather ever
clears up (and they fix the alternator in the plane) =)
Q: Does this mean that I/We can collect on the beer that you owe Me/Us?
A: Who are you? Crank caller! Crank caller!
Q: Ok - fess up - who are you working for
So I'll be seeing all the Wellington people in April - I expect a big
turnout at the first Curry =)
I agree that NZNOG is not the right place to discuss these matters in depth.
I will be posting a commentary (I dont think 'answer' is quite the right
description) on Lin's points on the public-discuss(a)internetnz.net.nz tonight
(I am sure others will do so as well)

While nznog isn't the right forum for this discussion, I don't
know what will be. InternetNZ does have a public discussion list.
Would that be a good place for such discussions?
