Статья посвящена wireless-коммуникациям, добравшимся в такие дыры, которые и на карте не сыщешь. Начинается вот такой историей...
Not long ago, my daughter Keiko asked me a simple question: “Where is Timbuktu?”
Before I could respond, she gave me her answer: “Between Timbukone and Timbukthree.”
Интересно, рассказал ли он в ответ стишок об этом городе...
A priest and a shepherd from Australia participate in a TV game. After
answering all the questions, there is a tie. So both are given one final
assignment. It is to write a poem in three minutes, using the word "Timbuktu".
The priest returns with the fruit of his inspiration:
"I was a father all my life,
I had no children, had no wife,
I read the bible through and through
on my way to Timbukto ... "
The poem makes a great impression, and the priest smells a sweet victory. But
then comes the shepherd, with his winning masterpiece:
"When Tim and I to Brisbane went
We met three ladies cheap to rent.
They were three and we were two,
So I booked one and Tim Booked Two ... "
