uubp - Unix-to-Unix beer protocol
Uubp allows the user to transfer beer, ale, or other fermented
grain beverages between network sites. Using TCP/IP
(telecommunication protocol for imbibing pilsners), uubp
encodes beer from a local file system into packets suitable for
FTP (fermentation transfer protocol) delivery at a remote IP
% uubp -c"AMBER" -f0.7 -y0 -q2 184.108.40.206
The preceding example sends two six-packs (-q2) of amber ale
(-c"AMBER") with a fizziness quotient of 70%, brewed using
yeast of type 0 (saccharomyces cerevisiae) to PI address
220.127.116.11, which is the IP address of the White House.
Both source and destination sites must be running uubp-daemon.
In addition, local restriction exist in many areas for the
transportation alkohol across state lines. The Electronic
Frontier Foundation is currently involved in litigation to
ensure the ability to distribute beer through the uubp protocol
according to the 21st Amendment. To support the SIG of EFF
devoted to this cause, join the Homebrewers of the Electronic
Frontier Engaged in Winning Electronic Independence and Zeroing
