    All,

    My Network Hardware professor has challenged the class into finding the name to this acronym: iSLIP.

    Since it has that lowercase i in it, I thought you all might know!

    Here are two of my guesses, and please tell me if I'm right, wrong, and if I am wrong, provide a guess of your own!

    Guess 1: Ingress Short Latency Interface Pattern
    Guess 2: International Symposium on Languages for Intensional Programming

    Thanks for any input!

    Looked it up, you're probably not gonna get it. You're really close on the second one though.

    Yeah we just started learning the iSLIP algorithm. Looks like this mystery will never be solved.

    SLIP = Serial Line Internet Protocol, a mostly obsolete encapsulation of the Internet Protocol designed to work over serial ports and modem connections. It is documented in RFC 1055.

    CSLIP = Compressed SLIP

    iSLIP = ???
