That "Press Release" message was forwarded to me by Ron Broesma, system
administrator at the Naval Ocean Systems Center (

I called the NIC and read it to them for confirmation BEFORE I
forwarded it to the phage list.

The person I spoke to at the NIC (damn, I don't remember his name.
"Dave", maybe?) didn't seem to know much about it, but was willing
to take the call officially, so I believed it to be genuine.

If this is a joke, I don't think it's funny either.
