Proof Of How I Almost Took The Internet Down…

September 5th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve tripped over it a couple of times.

I’ve done things to it and with it that perhaps I shouldn’t have.

I’ve even rebooted it once or twice.

On Thursday, I tried — unsuccessfully — to once and for all take down the Internet.

It’s he’s just too damned resilient for his own good. šŸ˜‰

Boy and his Turtle

One of my heroes…and an awesome person. Thank you, Vint.

    I am impressed! Vint looks like he's done that a couple of times. I'd watch out, he looks like he has a heck of a reach!

    That must be a fake pic.

    I can't believe Vint would hit a guy wearing glasses.

    I'm sure that some RFC somewhere forbids it.

    Of course, things get kinda cloudy these days.

    That is the pictiure of a lifetime. I am super jealous.

    btw, do you always carry your right that low? Because unless Vint Cerf is a leftie, he's power-lead forward and you look like you are about to take a nap… šŸ˜‰
