Yes, totally different can ... but in the case of these 20 year olds,
the fact that they are aware of such without my having to say anything
is far more important than how they dice up their network's ips.

Yeah, I already have read enough to understand this. My take for them is
its the principle of the matter in which any place they can "do
something" is good until they are educated enough to decide what is big
gain versus small gain.

I use it on my network on the grounds that I have yet to read that using
it will make it easier for hackers, even if it is only two cents of YMMV.

I'm looking forward to going back home to deal with my issues from prior
posts (smile)
