Good! Somebody had to bite the bullet and do it, let 'er rip. I'm
betting that Manassas will become the focal point of the whole issue.
It's likely gonna establish whether or not there's any money in it for
the service providers, whether or not the interference BPL generates
will terminally interfere with critical HF comms and how many of the
plugged-in $29.95/month citizen users of BPL in Manassas identities
get hacked, yadda, yadda, all of it.
For better or worse let the battle begin win lose or draw.
I vaguely remember Manassas being the last focal point of a much
earlier national debate, something about Lee handing Grant his sword
in Manassas . . is there some irony here?
There is no irony. Lee surrendered to Grant at the Appomattox
courthouse, which is not in Massassas. There is a good summary of the
Civil War battles at http://www2.cr.nps.gov/abpp/battles/bycampgn.htm.
You're right of course, my memory is a lot more vague than I thought
it was. BPL in Manassas is the Third Battle of Bull Run . . will that
work for you??
