Internet RFC Series Turn 50

http://www.circleid.com/posts/20190407_internet_rfc_series_turn_50/We have just passed the fiftieth anniversary for the Internet “Request for Comments” (RFC) series which started in April 1969 with the publication of RFC1 titled “Host Software” authored by Stephen D. Crocker. “Today, more than 8500 RFCs have been published, ranging across best practice information, experimental protocols, informational material, and, of course, Internet standards,” Flanagan notes.https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/2019/04/celebrating-50-years-of-the-rfcs-that-define-how-the-internet-works/

    Some tinhats seem to claim that 5G can hack your brain and control your thoughts, decisions and emotions.

    I can agree that 5G that talk and powerpoints (not the RF signals) has affected emotions of many people as some see huge business there, some see their country falling behind, some see security threads and some think it should be banned because they think that new radiation will kill us.

    Cisco Router Repair Revives Piece Of Internet History

    These days, it would be fair to say that the Internet as we know it runs on Cisco hardware. While you might never see them at work, there’s an excellent chance that every web-bound packet leaving your computer or smartphone will spend at least a few milliseconds of its life traveling through hardware built by the San Jose, California based company. But of course, even a telecommunications giant like Cisco had to start somewhere.

    Cisco’s first commercial router, the Advanced Gateway Server (AGS), was released in 1986 and helped put the company (and the Internet) on the path towards unfathomable success. [Andreas Semmelmann] had wanted to add one of these microwave-sized machines to his collection for some time, so when an AGS+ popped up in the local classifieds he didn’t hesitate to make the hour drive to go pick it up. But like many pieces of vintage computing equipment, it needed a little help getting back on its feet.
