Got home and did some maths homework. I have no idea what this assignment is talking about. Well, that’s not totally true. I know what he wants, and I am obviously doing something wrong, because I get this huge equation than wont simplify… I just can’t see what I have done wrong.

Did some web surfing. I can see what John means about the size of the BGP tables in core routers and CIDR. I think the main effect that CIDR has caused is that it is possible to have a lot more AS’s now than it used to be. If you want to have a look at the core routing table for Telstra Internet, have a look at Geoff Huston’s web page, which has a link at the bottom of it to the current routing table.
