I don't like the slash ('/'), since it's used to to seperate the
base network address and the relevant number of bits in IPv4
(e.g. 192.168.10.0/24 isn't the same as 192.168.10.0:24).
That dot-colon idea looks much better to me.
Someone should do a study to find out how many human life spans have
been lost waiting for NT to reboot.
