RfC 1149 Easter Egg - Transmission of IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers

(Webmaster's Note: No, this isn't really an Egg, but I thought it was pretty funny anyway.)

The Request for Comments form a series of documents, discussing many aspects of computer communication. RfC 1149, created on 1 April 1990, describes "A Standard for the Transmission of IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers" - more exactly: carrier pigeons. The text can be found at

I'm quite sure it is an egg, indeed. After all it's written on April 1st and the RfC's content also suggests it's not to be taken too seriously. Anyway, the Bergen Linux User Group managed doing the world's very first implementation of that RfC: http://www.blug.linux.no/rfc1149/

Again, not an egg in any way, but I'm sure you'll all like rfc2468, a tribute to Jon Postel. Note the content/rfc number relationship. (2468 who do we appreciate)

There has actually been a follow-up on the rfc-1149, which adds "Quality of Service" to the CPIP (Carrier Pigeon Internet Protocol). It's rfc2549 and you can find it at http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2549.txt
