    Thanks for the mention - it was a GREAT time (except for the hours spent taping down the power cords so everyone could run their laptops for the labs - think kneepads!)... Here are some tips for your readers... - Consider adding the TCP1323OPTS registry on Windows XP boxes - take a trace file of a large file transfer before setting - turn on this setting to 1 (not 0, not 2 or anything else!) - then take a trace after entering this registry key - If you want to get the early bird discounts for Summit 09, fill out the form at - Check out the bitgirl video on youtube showing how to add a custom column to Wireshark - I add the following for wireless analysis - they will show you the signal strength for WLAN Radiotap or PPI headers: radiotap.dbm_antsignal ppi.80211-common.dbm.antsignal - Check out the free packet generator at - The signature for Spore game play is a dns query for Thanks all - hope to see you next year at Summit 09. Laura Chappell
