I smell a custom compiled ip tables with tarpit?  While indeed all that
is good info for a lot of people I was not referring to any of that
above.  I have been familiar with all that for a long time.  If missed
somehow I get an anonymous mail...As I see all that is posted in CentOS

" Would like to see more of this from you"  Was intended to be more
like: Good to see you are being nice and informative.  Instead of your
normal like saying cmovCC! %EBX...
