Reliable, efficient transmission control for networks that suck.

Airhook is a reliable data delivery protocol, like TCP. Unlike TCP, Airhook gracefully handles intermittent, unreliable, or delayed networks. Other features include session recovery, queue control, and delivery status notification.

Inspired by life with CDPD, Airhook works well in environments that leave TCP gasping for air.


An implementation of the Airhook protocol is available as an ANSI C library suitable for use with any network transport and operating system. Included with the library are Unix utilities to proxy TCP via Airhook over UDP, so you can use protocols like HTTP and SSH with Airhook.

Implementation source code is available (tarballs, CVS) under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Library documentation and a protocol reference are available online.


Airhook is best described by comparison with TCP.


How to find guaranteed payday loans

If you need a quick loan in advance of your next payday, then the last thing you'll need is a loan procedure that involves lots of paperwork and lengthy delays in making a decision. That's why guaranteed payday loans at may prove to be attractive.

The payday loan is a great concept based on the recognition that we don't all want to borrow large amounts of money over lengthy periods of time. It is a form of cash advance loan on your next payday.

It typically offers: a simple online application process, a fast decision and access to fast cash via direct bank transfer (or if you have a prepaid Speed-e-card, the money can be loaded on to this), a one-off repayment when you next get paid - the loan at that point is finished and done with, repayment of the loan and charges via a debit directly from the lender - you don't actually have to do anything to make it happen!

Of course, even guaranteed $1,000 payday loans will have some conditions you'll have to meet.

Typically you'll need to have USA based bank account, permanent USA address, permanent employment that generates a regular salary or wage. Plus, be aged 18 or over.

As the payday loan is typically for a smaller amount and only advanced until you next get paid, you may find that the lenders are less concerned about minor blemishes on your credit history. Even if your credit history does have significant issues, the loan providers may still advance a lower amount and by repaying it on time, you may make yourself eligible for a larger loan in future.

As mentioned above, Speed-e-card offers a prepaid card for use with your pay day loan. This unique service means that once you've been approved for a payday loan from Speed-e-loans, the amount can be loaded on to your activated card. This means that you can have all the flexibility of a plastic card but without running the risk of totting up more debt. The card can only be used up to the maximum amount you have loaded onto it.

A prepaid debit card used in conjunction with guaranteed payday loans could provide you with that bit of extra financial resource to help cover that urgent bill or secure that once-in-a-lifetime bargain that's just not going to wait until you next get paid.
