I am feeling a bit stupid for helping "R C", and particularly
regretting that a tool was eventually provided that can easily be
abused by kiddies.  Things that make me uneasy:

1.  No real name.
2.  Throwaway email account.
3.  Unwilling to do the tiniest amount of work himself, but
all-too-willing to waste our time asking questions that would shame a
halfway-decent 13 year old interested in computers.
4.  Wants to use a NTP load generator tool but can't manage to compile C.
5.  Wants to run an executable some random mailing list person provides.

I'm not helping again unless "R C" manages to sound a lot more legitimate.
