trivial technically (as common sense would lead men of reason to
The bad news, as HWB points out, is that self-styled ISP organizations
and pseudo-organizations would have to do something that requires
coordination and mutual cooperation.....
It might be easier to implement the 'RocketScience Stochastic Predictive
Eliminate-the-Noise-in-the-Signal' Algorithm than to have providers
work together on a 'trival technical solution'
Enjoy the Fall Weather, BTW! I think I'll calibrate an old tube type
microwave sweep generator on the balcony for fun........... fun

Thanks for the sanity check, BTW.
