I have just fired off a message to my ISP pointing him to the instructions
for "no ip directed broadcast" so it will hopefully be fixed soon.

And I'm Cc'ing his upstream provider who probably never thought of testing
all the ?.?.?.255 addresses in their network and contacting their
downstream customers to get directed broadcast turned off. For them I'm
including the URLs

http://www.quadrunner.com/~chuegen/smurf.cgi
ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2267.txt

I sure would hate to get cut off from sending mail to Karl. ;-)
