Chris,

You're right, and I apologize for thinking everybody has a psionic tap on
the Old Boy Network (resisting heroically the urge to pun that one). EGP
stands for the Exterior Gateway Protocol, which is used to exchange information
between gateways and is described in RFC-904. As for the fuzzballs, he bleats
sheepishly, they are a bunch of frisky PDP11-compatible workstations used
by some of us to develop, test and evaluate new protocols and nets. See for
reference "The Empire Strikes Back," in which "fuzzball" is mentioned in the dialog. In
point of fact, the fuzz predate the movie.
