Packets and Ports

My network ports aren't getting much use at this point. However, I'm installing a LAN in my new home. Then I'll have eight network jacks, five phone jacks, and a wireless access point. I'll probably also get DSL to make my LAN a bit more useful.

The Origin of Nulato et al

I started off naming my computers after checkpoints on the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. The Iditarod didn't offer a decent name for my iPod, so I expanded my search base to include all communities in Alaska. Please visit the Alaska Department of Community and Regional Affairs' Alaska Community Database for more information on Ambler, Nulato, Nikolai, and other Alaskan communities.
