Background: Until early 2008 many residents had Telkom lines, and even ADSL in Muldersdrift. Unprecedented cable theft has led to the disappearance of Telkom from the area, though, and we need alternate solutions, particularly for data.

According to Wikipedia, a Request for Comments (RFC) is a memorandum published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) describing methods, behaviors, research, or innovations applicable to the working of the Internet and Internet-connected systems.

Amongst these RFCs there is one which may be of use to us, namely RFC 2549, which describes “IP over Avian Carriers with Quality of Service”.

Does anybody have some carrier pigeons so we can try this? ;-)
