And you can't mention inventions without thinking of the <a
href="http://xxx.lanl.gov./">Los Alamos National Laboratory</a>, the place
where the Bomb was born. (Yes, their URL really does start with 'xxx.')
Seems that a flashy new piece of browser-enhancing software from Peak
Technologies called <a
href="http://www.peak-media.com/netjet/netjet.html">Net.Jet</a> has ticked
off the network tweakers at a few Web sites, including the lab rats in
question. 
<p>
According to Peak's Web site, Net.Jet speeds up your browser by caching the
links to each Web page you visit. Great for you, dear user, but not so
great for the Web server at the other end as it tries frantically to dish
out the requests for pages. Not known for having long fuses, the nuclear
nerds of Los Alamos are treating Net.Jet users like a hot lump of plutonium
by allegedly locking them out of their site. The <a
href="http://www.imdb.com/">Internet Movie Database</a> has done the same.
