Minimizing Denial of Service attacks

The article is not an RFC , merely a supplement for administrators to take immediate action during an attack. Information included contain how-to's for the following routers, firewalls, and operating systems: Cisco, Nortel, Netscreen, 3COM, Lucent, Cabletron, Foundry, Redback, Extreme, Arrowpoint, Checkpoint, Solaris, BSD, Linux, AIX, and IRIX kernel tweaks. Definitely something to have bookmarked in case of an emergency. "

    it's a nice article, but OpenBSD isn't mentionned anywhere, even in the list of tweaks by OS (FreeBSD is). I don't have a problem with the article not talking about OpenBSD, but I don't see what's the point of posting this here.
