For folks from the non-networking world, default route means basically a path to send packets when you do not have a specific route. So e.g if you know how to send packets to Google, send it, for Netflix, send it, for say Amazon - no path? Well, no worries, just send via a default path. So default route is basically what takes traffic for everything else. Returning to the post which is not about networking.
Last week I was on way from Kolkata to Delhi after spending time at ISOC IXP workshop. It was Jet Airways 9W 946 on 10th March 2017. The flight took off slightly late and 90% time went just fine. Original arrival time was 16:30 though it was expected to be little late. Landing time… At around 16:15 pilots announced “to prepare for landing” and cabin crew started collecting waste and getting people ready.
So last week I couldn’t hold off my curiosity about world famous address “221b Baker Street”. I passed “Baker Street” tube station quite a few times and finally decided to just look for it. :) By time I reached the street it was lightly raining and I found few other (curious) people like me standing outside 221b Baker Street. It has got a museum for Sherlock Holmes (though was closed by the time I reached).
I just visited Moscow last week for attending ENOG 11. Some quick pictures from this short trip.
I had a nice two day trip to Paihia over weekend. Paihia is one of key tourist towns far up in North. It took around 4 hrs via bus from Auckland. Travel was quite comfortable and place was excellent. I would say Paihia itself was quite a nice place but travel to it was one of best scenic travel I ever had. [gallery link=“file” ids=“3895,3896,3898,3897,3901,3902”] I travelled via Inter-city bus. Outside India it’s quite common that just one person takes care of everything on behalf of bus company.
