The problem comes in when you have embedded system programmers that like to pad with zeros and VP's that are unable to think clearly. Try pinging 192.168.001.064. Hmm, didn't think that was the same as 192.168.1.52. Try to start a ping at 192.168.001.008. Hours of fun!

For every problem there is one solution which is simple, neat, and wrong. -- H. L. Mencken
