I am not a native English speaker either but find "Millsspeak" to be
an absolute delight. Even at those few times that I could imagine an
explaination that I'd understand swifter. Those situations are (at
least for me) very rare. And no, never watched Survivor.

Reading someone elses sources is always a treasure hunt in one sense
or the other. I very much value these comments as bonus treasures,
next to that nifty well thought out algorithm.

I also want to take this moment to recommend his book to anyone diving
into NTP,

http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~mills/book.html

Full of valuable information as well as of course Millsspeak, I cannot
recall ever reading another techical book at this level that made me
smile so many times. A great motivator to press on and learn more!

It is clear to me that I want to read and understand more of the source
now.:)
