    I mean, I feel like, for not being a lawyer in IP, I know an awful lot about IP and I'm very careful about it. So, be really, really thorough about the way that you do your IP, if you've ever think you might sell that IP to a big company because it's spooky how much work they do. " Well, some of the things that I said, some of the practical stuff like, really have your books in order, really have your IP in order, stuff like that.

    [IP] Print From Anywhere With Pogoplug
    It turns out that nothing really works except hard wiring its IP address into our printer setup. Um – yeah – that’s obvious – especially for someone who doesn’t know what an IP address is. When I arrived at my house in Homer, I hadn’t been here for two years. It took me one phone call to get Internet (DSL) working again (ACS had to reset my password) and within about 15 minutes everything was working just fine. Except I couldn’t print.
