"Well, $ISP is t3h suXX0r, $OTHER_ISP 4 teh w1NN!!!!!1111" the script 
kiddies shouted. Let me tell you, if it wasn't for my experiences 
hunting tigers in India, and the flask of brandy at my hip, I'd have 
turned tail and fled right there. But no, by jingo, I stood. Stared the 
buggers down. Three feet of Cat5 cable, an elderly Cisco router, and 
half a tin of best mustache wax. Did more than deny 'em service, eh? 
Gave 'em what for. Knocked 'em for six and home in time for tea.


Ian, proving Simon's point.
