[Beowulf] Three notes from ISC 2006

... it was a short note written by a list regular with a good signal  
to noise ratio.  The whitepaper contents sound on-topic for many  
people on this list and the "email me for a copy" is exactly what I  
see myself and many other employed-by-industry types do when we want  
to share something in a technical forum without spamming around  
corporate URLs (which can be tacky, especially in forums like beowulf).

In short, this was appropriate (and interesting). We've all seen  
vendor spam and disguised marketing and this does not rise anywhere  
close to that level.

My $.02 of course
