Vaste telefonie in de jaren '20

Ik heb ondertussen mijn "KPN box" binnen die over ruim een week aan de glasvezel aangesloten gaat worden. En die heeft, net als mijn Ziggo kabelmodem, twee poorten voor analoge telefoons. Nog interessanter: je kan je eigen router aansluiten. Dan heb je in principe de mogelijkheid een eigen VoIP (SIP) telefoon te gebruiken. Die telefoniedienst kost twee euro extra bovenop het internetabonnement.

Dus misschien toch wel een interessante optie, een VoIP-telefoon op mijn bureau voor lange gesprekken zonder dat het mobiele netwerk even de weg kwijtraakt of de batterij van mijn iPhone leegraakt.

Someone pointed out that the BGP expert test I've had on for a very long time didn't work anymore. I fixed that, and also changed a few questions. So I think I can now call it the BGP expert test v2.0.

Check it out and tell me your score!

Accent tool: a web tool to easily add or remove accents

This web tool lets you click on a list of accents to add those accents to text you've typed or pasted in a text box. Or remove accents with a click. So no need to remember those pesky alt codes or unintuitive key combinations!

The effectiveness of AS path prepending

In a recent blog post The Effectiveness of AS Path Prepending (1) Russ White asks:

Just about everyone prepends AS’ to shift inbound traffic from one provider to another—but does this really work?

(AS path prepending means making the network path as BGP sees it longer to make a path less attractive so traffic will flow over another, shorter path.)

That's an interesting question, as I've been telling people for a long time that it often works too well.
