You've considered using portfast on edge ports?
You know, it's been there for awhile...
usually forwarding loops are caused only by networking gear, not by hosts (although I've seen a few malicios ones...). That't the problem with improperly deployed L2 network that it fails this way (l2 networks fail open, l3 networks fail closed), I guess
/. could ask around a bit and let somebody design their hosting network so STP loops don't happen.
Especially if you're running HP gear.
I can volunteer and I've got the experience and skills to pull it off ;)
tsa writes "Ars Technica reports that 13 of the 23 members from the technical committee of the Norwegian standards body, the organization that manages technical standards for the country, have resigned because of the way the OOXML standardization was handled. We've previously discussed Norway's protest and ISO's rejection of other appeals. From the article: 'The standardization process for Microsoft's office format has been plagued with controversy. Critics have challenged the validity of its ISO approval and allege that procedural irregularities and outright misconduct marred the voting process in national standards bodies around the world. Norway has faced particularly close scrutiny because the country reversed its vote against approval despite strong opposition to the format by a majority of the members who participated in the technical committee.'"
