And both the CIPE and Squid/POP articles got mentioned by opennet.ru. There is a comment in the Squid one. I can only understand LDAP in it, even after babelfishing it. Hopefully it doesn't say "You should use LDAP, doofus", because I know it's mostly true ;-)
The CIPE article was accepted by linuxtoday, and it got some readership. So far, the comments are good.
