If TEN split knowing that one of the entities being split could not fulfill its obligations, that would be a fraudulent conveyance. The courts invalidate the split and will force TEN to pay off the obligations in the long run. Of course, that will take years to wind through the court system. In the mean time, the lawyers will make a fortune.

"Solid State drives (SSD) introduced dramatic changes to the principles of computer forensics. Forensic acquisition of computers equipped with SSD storage is very different of how we used to acquire PCs using traditional magnetic media. Instead of predictable and highly possible recovery of information the suspect attempted to destroy, we are entering the muddy waters of stochastic forensics where nothing can be assumed as a given."

No, X was the follow on to W from Stanford. I doubt you ran X on a BLIT, but on a 630MTG, aka Son of a BLIT. I was one of the engineers that ported X to the 630. That was an awesome project, and we had an incredible team to do it. Our server out performed the USL X server, and all we had was a 10MHz 68000, while they had a 25MHz 386 with a 387.

The Internet worked on the assumption that a provider would be both a content source and sink. Comcast is just a sink. It doesn't have to worry about its behavior damaging its ability to distribute content on the Internet, as it has virtually none. Yes, I know that some people host on Comcast Business, but that accounts for a small percentage of the traffic flow.
