I once spent an interesting weekend in his company. He'd been born in Beijing, a walled city, and we took him via Chester on our way to North Wales. It was the first time he'd been in a walled city since his childhood. Walking near Llanberis, he found a Yew tree and enjoyed eating the berries. Still my photo of him on the Wikipedia page. Amazing guy, I hope his enthusiasm and inspiration lives on as his legacy.

I think not.
There seems to be a custom compression algorithm used for
mplayer/xine/vlc don't like it.
In Firefox and Chromium it shows a loading page but stops at 80-something percent.

I've been getting up to speed on IPv6 and have a tunnel from he.net (tunnelbroker.net). It seems to pop out somewhere on the other side of the Atlantic, judging from geographically targeted advertising. Several big sites are already IPv6 enabled (Firefox plugin SixOrNot), e.g. Facebook, Google, Youtube.
Five dollar wrench neuters the "protection" of #1 and #4.
The OP mentions Sandvine: the EFF has a tool called Switzerland.
Is your ISP interfering with your BitTorrent connections? Cutting off your VOIP calls? Undermining the principles of network neutrality? In order to answer those questions, concerned Internet users need tools to test their Internet connections and gather evidence about ISP interference practices. After all, if it weren't for the testing efforts of Rob Topolski, the Associated Press, and EFF, Comcast would still be stone-walling about their now-infamous BitTorrent blocking efforts.
Developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Switzerland is an open source software tool for testing the integrity of data communications over networks, ISPs and firewalls. It will spot IP packets which are forged or modified between clients, inform you, and give you copies of the modified packets.
Switzerland is designed to detect the modification or injection of packets of data traveling over IP networks, including those introduced by anti-P2P tools from Sandvine (widely believed to be used by Comcast to interfere with BitTorrent uploads) and AudibleMagic, advertising injection systems like FairEagle, censorship systems like the Great Firewall of China, and other systems that we don't know about yet.

Instead of starting the whole run over, he started midway through, typing the numbers straight from the earlier printout to give the machine its initial conditions. Then he walked down the hall for a cup of coffee, and when he returned an hour later, he found an unexpected result. Instead of exactly duplicating the earlier run, the new printout showed the virtual weather diverging so rapidly from the previous pattern that, within just a few virtual "months", all resemblance between the two had disappeared.
Edward Lorenz discovered that floating point truncation causes weather simulations to diverge massively back in 1961.
This was the foundation of Chaos Theory and it was Lorenz who created the term "Butterfly Effect"
where a large financial institution insisted its systems were bug free and secure,

Here are a couple of posts I've made in the past about OpenSTA, an open source "Web load and stress testing tool", which

The web site is still there, but nothing seems to have happened since 2007.
I run the Firefox plugin SixOrNot. Google - a green 6. Youtube and Facebook ditto. Slashdot, a red 4. There are major sites out there running IPv6.
Now that there are no more IPv4 addresses available in Europe, it's in the interests of the established players to suppress IPv6 and lock out disruptive new startups: e.g. ISP's or Co-Lo's.
I can't help thinking that the average Slashdot reader has already watched every episode of Good Eats and knows not to do this already.
Insert "North American" between "average" and "Slashdot".
