Just a quick heads-up:
  * ZeroConf is the name of the technology developed by
    Apple Computer (now Apple Inc.)

  * Rendezvous is the name of a product by TIBCO Software,
    which Apple inadvertently used to name their ZeroConf
    implementation up until about April 14 2005.

  * Bonjour is the name of Apple's implementation of the
    ZeroConf technology since about April 14 2005

Sorry to enter in with my pedantic nonsense which is of no technical  
use whatsoever. I'm sure the people at TIBCO Software will appreciate  
you not continuing to dilute their trademark, and Apple would  
certainly want you using the proper name for their ZeroConf  

Again, apologies. You may now return to the regular list content...
