Other Stories and ... The Attack of the Giant Baby by Kit ReedR.I.P. Miss Reed. It is an odd thing to me that a little-known collection such as this would become one of my all-time favorite short story collections. Most times there are a few stinkers in the bunch; not here, Im happy to say. Every story pulls you along with its strange humor, quiet horror, and understated implications.

I will not forget these, nor will I forget Miss Reed. I cant wait to begin reading her other work.

Will monster-sized Ethernet Frames run through my downtown network, flattening everything in their path, and causing crowds of users to go running through the streets in terror? While we promise not to knock holes in your buildings, or crush any cars while we tackle this monster topic, we still advise all of our customers not to trade any of their cows for magic beanstalk beans. In order to understand strange extra-large variations of Ethernet LAN Frames, we should first make sure everyone is generally familiar with some of the standard features of an Ethernet Frame. An Ethernet Frame consists of a number of information fields used for signaling, traffic routing, classification, and error handling. These fields are shown in blue in Figure 1 below.
