I had to dig this up for my brother who is now finally learning spanning tree.

Spanning tree was developed by Dr. Radia Perlman of Sun Microsystems,
Inc., who summedup the idea in a poem titled“Algorhyme”
that’s based on Joyce Kilmer’s “Trees”:

I think that I shall never see
A graph more lovely than a tree.
A tree whose crucial property
Is loop-free connectivity.
A tree which must be sure to span.
So packets can reach every LAN.
First the Root must be selected
By ID it is elected.
Least cost paths from Root are traced
In the tree these paths are placed.
A mesh is made by folks like me
Then bridges find a spanning tree.

Anybody have experience or knowledge unlocking phones, particularly the iPhone? I'm still under contract but have seen a bunch of websites that purport to be able to unlock your phone so you can use it on a different carrier. Seems pretty fishy...does it work?

By counting the number of crazy, jingling, battery-powered hats in the corner of my office, I have scientifically deduced that this year will be the 6th time I've attended Cisco Live (starting way ...

Fellow Catholics: How do you get a priest to embrace new media when he doesn't understand it? Any resources you recommend?
