Late At Night With Ole (2 AM)

Call in your favorite Internetwork questions to Ole Jacobsen and his guests. Tonite's featured guests are John Moy, prime author of OSPF, and Milo Medin who will talk about how OSPF is great, but you really need to test it on 1822 networks to understand why.

Mike at the Mike (4 PM)

   Listen in to the Marina's favorite local DJ.  Hear why They never

   MAP at 7:45 for a wee bit of this week's preferred single malt.

The Protocol Police (8 PM)

Liven up your evening with the protocol police. Join our intrepid team of Stev Knowles and Mike St. Johns as they debug various TCP/IP implementations from the comfort of Mike's hot tub using Stev's water-proof portable PC.

Who will our team nab this week?

Family Hour (10 PM)

As part of this week's special series on children and networking, Bob Morris and Jerry Estrin talk about how much you should teach your young children about networking.

Securely Speaking (11 PM)

   Come eavesdrop as Steve Kent and Steve Crocker give you this week's
   latest security news (if they're allowed to talk about it).  And
   remember, just after 11 o'clock Steve and Steve will be reading this
   week's encrypted message.  If you're the first caller to call in with
   the right DES key to decrypt the message, you'll win $1,000 and an
   all expenses paid trip to Ft. Meade!  (US nationals only please).
