Daniel, I'm not including all the original recipients to save bandwidth and junkmail. I propose that you could summarize to them, if you rate something as being substantial input. |.. | > 3) Do net names serve any useful purpose? | |Yes they do! As with all names they make it easier to talk about |the object named. I agree wholeheartedly! I think there is already too much things in Internet that is talked about (and output by programs) in numbers and figures only. | > Should we get rid of them altogether? | |So this answer is no. I think we should keep them, although names are only as useful as the information being put into it. Eg. calling a network say 193.170.x "NET01" for the database... Wilfried.
