Demon is dead, but some IP addresses are still alive

Apologies in advance for my Demon network history pedantry 😜

158.152.1/24 was reserved for Demon service and network infrastructure hosts. Customer accounts were allocated static IP addresses later in the block, with founding members starting from 158.152.8/24. Back then there was a certain kudos attached to having a low numbered Demon IP address as it showed how much of an early adopter you were!

Giles’ dialup account was rundart.demon.co.uk, I think gt.demon.co.uk was his office machine (hence being in the ‘internal’ network range).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
