Letters to the Editor
In the December issue, there is a misprint in David A. Bandel's article “CIDR: A Prescription for Shortness of Address Space”. On page 26, under the CIDR heading, second paragraph, it states:
For a Class C address, this default subnet is 24 bytes long, so putting all ones in the first 24 bytes and zeroes in the rest, we have 255.255.255.0.
I think this should instead read 24 bits, rather than bytes, since each octet is composed of 8 bits, which gives 4 total bytes. Just wanted to bring this to your attention. Great article!

Mea culpa—you are 100% correct. Thank you for pointing out that little lapse of attention on my part. Guess I need to re-read everything thrice, because I read it twice and missed it both times. —firstname.lastname@example.org
