Cisco LocalDirector

Cisco LocalDirector is a server load balancing appliance, discontinued in 2003, based on the Network Address Translation technology Cisco Systems acquired when they bought Network Translation, Inc. The LocalDirector was conceived by John Mayes & Robert Andrews in late 1995 during a pre-acquisition meeting with Robert, Webmaster at Netscape Communications Corporation. During the meeting, Robert Andrews told John Mayes that there were, "probably 10 customers in the world with a load balancing problem"; because of this, the decision was made to begin development on the LocalDirector. Brantley Coile, who had written the code for the PIX firewall for NTI and Cisco, started coding of the LocalDirector shortly after this meeting; as a result of the NTI acquisition by Cisco Systems in late 1995, Brantley hired a team of four long-time associates who were developers: Richard Howes, now at Steelbox Networks, Pete Tenereillo worked for NTI prior to the Cisco acquisition, Jim Jordan and Tom Bohannon at SteelBox, were hired after the acquisition.

Together the four developed the code for LocalDirector. The majority of the LocalDirector code was shared with the early PIXes. Though F5 and Cisco started development of a load balancing product around the same time, F5 needed to re-staff and re-develop after the first attempt; the LocalDirector was the industry's first load balancer. It first shipped to a customer in April 1996, only four months after development started, beating the next earliest competitors, F5 and HydraWeb, to market by a full year. Load balancing provides three important functions, it provides server availability, server scalability and the ability to manage server by bringing them on and off line. All LocalDirector models were built with Intel-based/Intel-compatible motherboards, along with Intel and Digital network chipsets; the LocalDirector utilizes a proprietary operating system. The PIX firewall today uses a derivative of the same operating system. All systems boot from flash memory. Flash Memory cards LDIR-2MB-Flash - 2MB ISA flash memory card for all LocalDirectors except the 417/417G.

Identical to the 2MB flash card used in early PIXes. PEP upgrade card - 4MB ISA flash upgrade card for the LD 416/430, so named because it, like all of the flash cards used in the PIX/LocalDirector/SSG6510 devices, was manufactured by Productivity Enhancement Products, or PEP. Uses two AMD AM29F016D chips for flash memory, the BIOS resides on an AMD AM29F010b chip. Description printed on the card itself indicates that it was designed as a 16MB flash card, but six of the eight possible locations silkscreened on the PCB for the 29F016D chips are not populated, it is not comparable to any card used in the PIX, nor does the PIX OS recognize its flash chips. Mentioned in the 3.2 release notes. Network interface cards LD-FDDI - 32 bit/33 MHz dual port PCI FDDI card based on the Interphase 5511 FDDI card. LD-FE - 32 bit/33 MHz single port 10/100 Fast Ethernet card. Based variously on the Intel 82557, 82558, or 82559 chipsets. LD-GE - PCI Gigabit Ethernet PCI card. Based on the Intel 82542 chipset. Does not support autonegotiation of speed or duplex.

Identical to the PIX expansion card, the PIX-1GE. Mentioned in the version 3.2.1 installation guide. LD-QUADFE - 32 bit/33 MHz Four port 10/100 Fast Ethernet card; this Osicom-manufactured PCI card came in two varieties. The two kinds can be differentiated visually: when installed in the chassis, the Digital-based card's link speed/activity lights are on the left side of the RJ-45 jack, the Intel card's link speed/activity lights are on the right side of the RJ-45 jack. One version, identified by the OS as an rns23x0 card, was based on the Digital 21140/21152 chipset, it did not support autonegotiation of speed or duplex; the other version, identified by the OS as an i82557 card, was based on the Intel 82558 chipset and was identical to the Cisco PIX expansion card, the PIX-4FE. NI-2FE - PCI dual-port 10/100baseTX Ethernet card.

Thomas D. Shepard

Thomas D. Shepard, or Tom Shepard, is a former Los Angeles City Council member who served between 1961 and 1967, he left office when he was convicted of receiving a bribe, he served time in state prison. Shepard was born in Ohio about 1925 and was an infantry sergeant in France and Germany during World War II, he moved to Los Angeles about 1949 after attending Ohio Wesleyan University, Ohio State University and Wittenberg College, all in Ohio. Shepard did graduate work in economics at UCLA, he and his wife and their four children, Susan and Barbara, lived at 4731 Natoma Avenue, Woodland Hills. In 1954–57 he was field secretary for City Councilman Robert M. Wilkinson and for Councilman Patrick D. McGee in 1959–60, he was field secretary for Mayor Norris Poulson. See List of Los Angeles municipal election returns, 1961, 1965. Shepard was elected to a four-year term in the 3rd District in June 1961, succeeding his boss, Patrick D. McGee. In that era, the 3rd District included West Hollywood, UCLA and contiguous territory and, on the other side of the Santa Monica Mountains a portion of the San Fernando Valley, including Tarzana and Woodland Hills.

He was reelected in 1965. Shepard became known for his opposition to strip-tease shows in suburban areas and once brought to a City Council meeting a magazine, which he kept in a manila envelope, "with many photographs of youngsters nude, disporting themselves in a wooded area." He told the council in 1964: The rawest type of lascivious and lustful paperback magazines may be obtained from racks in any drug or liquor store and in many markets in the Valley, with much of the offensive material which features teen-age nudism disappearing from the shelves into the hands of impressionable youngsters. In 1967 he warned of "reports that an army of hippies proposes to visit Los Angeles during the summer and establish headquarters in the city parks" and said he would seek municipal legislation to prevent "commandeering" of the parks by such intruders. After three public meetings the same year, an eight-member City Council committee "cleared" Shepard and entertainer Art Linkletter of charges that they were linked in a scheme to influence city purchase of the "financially troubled" Valley Music Theater in Woodland Hills.

In December 1967 he announced that he would quit the council early in order to enter the import-export business, basing his decision on the financial need for his family. Shepard and former Recreation and Parks Commissioner Mel Pierson were indicted by a grand jury in September 1968 on charges of bribery and conspiracy in the rezoning of land in the San Fernando Valley. Shepard's trial ended in acquittal on a hung jury on another. On the advice of his attorney, John La Follette, he submitted the transcript of the latter case to a judge, who found him guilty. A new lawyer, Phill Silver and won a new trial for Shepard, he was convicted, in November 1969 of a bribery charge and was sentenced to state prison for a 1-14-year term by Superior Judge Pearce Young, who noted that the power to rezone was the power to create great wealth and using that power wrongfully "is just as bad as stealing public money." In May 1971, Shepard became general manager and vice president of Ries Biological of Los Angeles, which dealt in drugs and medical supplies and devices.

He served a 15-month sentence at the Chino Institution for Men, after his release he was hired by City Council Member Ernani Bernardi in January 1975 "as a project assistant under the federal government's emergency jobs program." He was working there in 1979. A library card may be required to access the Los Angeles Times links

Walker's Bulldogs reeled off solid wins—all in October—over Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Temple, he rushed for a season-high 265 yards on 41 attempts and a touchdown against Mississippi on October 10. A week Walker rushed 39 times for 188 yards and 2 touchdowns versus Vanderbilt. Against Temple, he scored a career-high 4 touchdowns while rushing 23 times for 112 yards against the Owls. On November 7, seventh-ranked Georgia got behind, 14–0, down in Jacksonville, to the Florida Gators, but came back to win in a repeat score of last season's game, 26–21. Walker rushed a career-high 47 times for 192 yards while scoring four touchdowns; the Bulldogs finished out the regular season at home against nearby rivals: the Auburn Tigers and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. The 24–13 win over coach Pat Dye's Tigers clinched a 2nd SEC Championship in a row for Georgia. In the third quarter, Walker's 2-yard touchdown run gave the Bulldogs a commanding 24–7 lead.

Walker pounded out 165 yards on 37 rushes during the contest. Georgia led Auburn 17-7 at the half as senior quarterback Buck Belue complimented Walker's power ground game by throwing for two touchdowns. Against Georgia Tech, seniors Belue and Scott set the tone on the game's first play by hooking up on an 80-yard pass as Scott raced into the end zone to spark a 34–0 halftime lead. Walker got into the act by scoring three touchdowns in the first half, he added a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter as Georgia cruised past the Yellow Jackets, 44–7. Walker finished with 36 rushes for 4 touchdowns in the rivalry matchup. Riding an 8-game winning streak, Georgia was ranked No. 2 in the country when they faced Pittsburgh in the 1982 Sugar Bowl. Walker made his presence felt early as he bolted 8 yards for a touchdown in the 2nd quarter giving Georgia a 7–0 lead. After a 30-yard, Dan Marino touchdown pass lifted Pitt to a 10-7 lead in third quarter, Walker answered. Walker scored from 10 yards out to give Georgia a 14–10 lead going into the 4th quarter.

With Georgia clinging to a 20–17 lead late in the game, Marino found Pittsburgh's receiver John Brown for a 33-yard touchdown pass with 0:35 left in the game.
