	Hell, consider this. Here I am on a 3 week business trip,
 sitting in one of these anonymous little building associated with
 DARPA (well, actually one of the ubiquitous three letter acronym
 "sensitive" labs).  I have access to an internet connection, but not
 to the servers in the facility -- (I may not have clearance, and
 certainly the data transmitted would not be allowed there).  I get a
 dynamic IP for net access.

 rather than making everyone wait for weeks, I respond.
