The real reassembler

You know there are other Reassemblers.

Internet Protocol network traffic is broken up into packets for transmission, and a reassembler sits at the receiving end and puts the packets back together in the right order. (Here’s a description of some security implications of packet reassembly back in the day, btw.)

Reassembly is also used in the context of DNA. As with cryptography and singularitarianism, you can get in over your head very fast reading about DNA reassembly.

Then there’s the Hair Reassembler, as featured on the Half-Bakery, which appears to be a collective invention/creativity site. Priceless.

There is a Reassembler on Digg.com. That’s not me.

Happily this blog has more Google juice than the others. Does that make me the real Reassembler?
