Which is why in April 2000 in bought up wpad.org at a cost of $70 (I still have 
the online invoice) and offered it to Microsoft when it expired in 2002 - free 
of charge - provided they continued to pay for the renewal.  MS didn't have a 
security clue at all back in 2002 so I let it lapse.  Now it appears Duane 
Wessels has that domain.

This was part of the Web Replication and Caching working group (www.wrec.com) 
and even had a draft RFC:
which never got anywhere.  I guess that is why Duane bought up wpad.org after I 
released it.
