Automatic Porch Light Takes Last Remaining IP4 Address

GENEVA, IL -- When Percy Milford, an amateur computer hobbyist, purchased a porch light from Radio Shack he had no idea he was about to make history. The light, an RS-9312333, contains a built in router which, due to a contract made in the late 1980s, assigns an automatic static IP4 address to the device. When Mr. Milford's light connected to the web, he was assigned the last of 4.2 billion IP4 addresses.
