Would you be interested in RFC cliff notes?


I’ve been toying with the idea of reading one RFC a week and developing cliff notes so I can remember everything I read down the road. While I can always recall WHERE I read something, sometimes I need to go out and read the section in the RFC a second time to verify the details. All of the major protocols have a slew of RFCs associated with them, and I’m thinking about starting with DNS, moving on to SMTP, HTTP and NFS. While I’ve used solutions that heavily rely on these protocols, I’ve never read the RFCs from beginning to end. I’ve read large sections here and there to understand how an aspect of the protocol works, but never the entire thing. If you are interested in a set of cliff notes please add your comments. It takes a lot of time to write up stuff on the blog, so I don’t want to waste my time if there isn’t sufficient demand. :)
