Asking about limits means you are doing something wrong?

Jeff Atwood is an interesting character, and I love reading his blog. Usually I agree with what he insights; sometimes I don't. Today is a case of a little of both at the same time:

The correct way to re-register IIS.

Anatoly Lubarsky deserves the kudos for this information about re-registering IIS, found originally here: http://blogs.x2line.com/al/archive/2007/07/15/3203.aspx.

I have to admit that I am guilty of using the brute force method of "aspnet_regiis -i". However, the "correct" method (which after a quick trip to the docs, does seem more reasonable and less destructive) is:

aspnet_regiis -ir -enable

and then

aspnet_regiis -s path

Net Neutrality: who decides what traffic gets what priority?

The paper written by M. Yuksel, K. K. Ramakrishnan, S. Kalyanaraman, J. D. Houle, and R. Sadhvani: Value of Supporting Class-of-Service in IP Backbones brings mathematical rigor to a fairly intuitive observation. Put simply, it is the fact that undifferentiated networks (networks without packet priority schemes) require more available bandwidth to handle the high priority data in a timely fashion than a network that can separate classes of data into priority levels.
