WTH! Upgrade took out the coffee pot.(Unsolvable)

  • Ok, so I was implementing the Java program I wrote years back concerning the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol (RFC 2324) and had finally got my coffee maker wired up to the USB 3.5V120.
    I was also running in a VM brewmaster delux model with a 12Gb pot including the new water cooled AMDx64 hot plate. What the heck guys. I need help.(overstatement I know) ???
    I have gone over the attached RFC 2324 below but am getting frustrated like everyone else.
    I have followed this protocol to the tea but still no good.
    If you need more info I will put it up, but first I will need to reboot the toaster, I suspect it has been compromised. Trojam infection I suspect.

       This document describes HTCPCP, a protocol for controlling,
       monitoring, and diagnosing coffee pots.
    1\. Rationale and Scope
       There is coffee all over the world. Increasingly, in a world in which
       computing is ubiquitous, the computists want to make coffee. Coffee
       brewing is an art, but the distributed intelligence of the web-
       connected world transcends art.  Thus, there is a strong, dark, rich
       requirement for a protocol designed espressoly for the brewing of
       coffee. Coffee is brewed using coffee pots.  Networked coffee pots
       require a control protocol if they are to be controlled.
       Increasingly, home and consumer devices are being connected to the
       Internet. Early networking experiments demonstrated vending devices
       connected to the Internet for status monitoring [COKE]. One of the
       first remotely _operated_ machine to be hooked up to the Internet,
       the Internet Toaster, (controlled via SNMP) was debuted in 1990
       The demand for ubiquitous appliance connectivity that is causing the
       consumption of the IPv4 address space. Consumers want remote control
       of devices such as coffee pots so that they may wake up to freshly
       brewed coffee, or cause coffee to be prepared at a precise time after
       the completion of dinner preparations.

    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
       This document specifies a Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol
       (HTCPCP), which permits the full request and responses necessary to
       control all devices capable of making the popular caffeinated hot
       HTTP 1.1 ([RFC2068]) permits the transfer of web objects from origin
       servers to clients. The web is world-wide.  HTCPCP is based on HTTP.
       This is because HTTP is everywhere. It could not be so pervasive
       without being good. Therefore, HTTP is good. If you want good coffee,
       HTCPCP needs to be good. To make HTCPCP good, it is good to base
       HTCPCP on HTTP.
       Future versions of this protocol may include extensions for espresso
       machines and similar devices.
    2\. HTCPCP Protocol
       The HTCPCP protocol is built on top of HTTP, with the addition of a
       few new methods, header fields and return codes.  All HTCPCP servers
       should be referred to with the "coffee:" URI scheme (Section 4).
    2.1 HTCPCP Added Methods
    2.1.1 The BREW method, and the use of POST
       Commands to control a coffee pot are sent from client to coffee
       server using either the BREW or POST method, and a message body with
       Content-Type set to "application/coffee-pot-command".
       A coffee pot server MUST accept both the BREW and POST method
       equivalently.  However, the use of POST for causing actions to happen
       is deprecated.
       Coffee pots heat water using electronic mechanisms, so there is no
       fire. Thus, no firewalls are necessary, and firewall control policy
       is irrelevant. However, POST may be a trademark for coffee, and so
       the BREW method has been added. The BREW method may be used with
       other HTTP-based protocols (e.g., the Hyper Text Brewery Control
    2.1.2 GET method
       In HTTP, the GET method is used to mean "retrieve whatever
       information (in the form of an entity) identified by the Request-
       URI." If the Request-URI refers to a data-producing process, it is
       the produced data which shall be returned as the entity in the
       response and not the source text of the process, unless that text
       happens to be the output of the process.
    Masinter                     Informational                      [Page 2]
    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
       In HTCPCP, the resources associated with a coffee pot are physical,
       and not information resources. The "data" for most coffee URIs
       contain no caffeine.
    2.1.3 PROPFIND method
       If a cup of coffee is data, metadata about the brewed resource is
       discovered using the PROPFIND method [WEBDAV].
    2.1.4 WHEN method
       When coffee is poured, and milk is offered, it is necessary for the
       holder of the recipient of milk to say "when" at the time when
       sufficient milk has been introduced into the coffee. For this
       purpose, the "WHEN" method has been added to HTCPCP. Enough? Say
    2.2 Coffee Pot Header fields
       HTCPCP recommends several HTTP header fields and defines some new
    2.2.1 Recommended header fields The "safe" response header field.
       [SAFE] defines a HTTP response header field, "Safe", which can be
       used to indicate that repeating a HTTP request is safe. The inclusion
       of a "Safe: Yes" header field allows a client to repeat a previous
       request if the result of the request might be repeated.
       The actual safety of devices for brewing coffee varies widely, and
       may depend, in fact, on conditions in the client rather than just in
       the server. Thus, this protocol includes an extension to the "Safe"
       response header:
              Safe                = "Safe" ":" safe-nature
              safe-nature         = "yes" | "no" | conditionally-safe
              conditionally-safe  = "if-" safe-condition
              safe-condition      = "user-awake" | token
       indication will allow user agents to handle retries of some safe
       requests, in particular safe POST requests, in a more user-friendly

    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
    2.2.2 New header fields The Accept-Additions header field
       In HTTP, the "Accept" request-header field is used to specify media
       types which are acceptable for the response. However, in HTCPCP, the
       response may result in additional actions on the part of the
       automated pot. For this reason, HTCPCP adds a new header field,
           Accept-Additions = "Accept-Additions" ":"
                              #( addition-range [ accept-params ] )
            addition-type   = ( "*"
                              | milk-type
                              | syrup-type
                              | sweetener-type
                              | spice-type
                              | alcohol-type
                              ) *( ";" parameter )
            milk-type       = ( "Cream" | "Half-and-half" | "Whole-milk"
                              | "Part-Skim" | "Skim" | "Non-Dairy" )
            syrup-type      = ( "Vanilla" | "Almond" | "Raspberry"
                              | "Chocolate" )
            alcohol-type    = ( "Whisky" | "Rum" | "Kahlua" | "Aquavit" )
    2.2.3 Omitted Header Fields
       No options were given for decaffeinated coffee. What's the point?
    2.3 HTCPCP return codes
       Normal HTTP return codes are used to indicate difficulties of the
       HTCPCP server. This section identifies special interpretations and
       new return codes.
    2.3.1 406 Not Acceptable
       This return code is normally interpreted as "The resource identified
       by the request is only capable of generating response entities which
       have content characteristics not acceptable according to the accept
       headers sent in the request. In HTCPCP, this response code MAY be
       returned if the operator of the coffee pot cannot comply with the
       Accept-Addition request. Unless the request was a HEAD request, the
       response SHOULD include an entity containing a list of available
       coffee additions.

    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
       In practice, most automated coffee pots cannot currently provide
    2.3.2 418 I'm a teapot
       Any attempt to brew coffee with a teapot should result in the error
       code "418 I'm a teapot". The resulting entity body MAY be short and
    3\. The "coffee" URI scheme
       Because coffee is international, there are international coffee URI
       schemes.  All coffee URL schemes are written with URL encoding of the
       UTF-8 encoding of the characters that spell the word for "coffee" in
       any of 29 languages, following the conventions for
       internationalization in URIs [URLI18N].
    coffee-url  =  coffee-scheme ":" [ "//" host ]
                    ["/" pot-designator ] ["?" additions-list ]
    coffee-scheme = ( "koffie"                      ; Afrikaans, Dutch
                      | "q%C3%A6hv%C3%A6"          ; Azerbaijani
                      | "%D9%82%D9%87%D9%88%D8%A9" ; Arabic
                   | "akeita"                   ; Basque
                   | "koffee"                   ; Bengali
                   | "kahva"                    ; Bosnian
                   | "kafe"                     ; Bulgarian, Czech
                   | "caf%C3%E8"                ; Catalan, French, Galician
                      | "%E5%92%96%E5%95%A1"       ; Chinese
                      | "kava"                     ; Croatian
                   | "k%C3%A1va                 ; Czech
                   | "kaffe"                    ; Danish, Norwegian, Swedish
                   | "coffee"                   ; English
                   | "kafo"                     ; Esperanto
                      | "kohv"                     ; Estonian
                   | "kahvi"                    ; Finnish
                   | "%4Baffee"                 ; German

                   | "%D0%BA%D0%BE%D1%84%D0%B5" ; Russian
                   | "%E0%B8%81%E0%B8%B2%E0%B9%81%E0%B8%9F" ; Thai
       pot-designator = "pot-" integer  ; for machines with multiple pots
       additions-list = #( addition )

    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
       All alternative coffee-scheme forms are equivalent.  However, the use
       of coffee-scheme in various languages MAY be interpreted as an
       indication of the kind of coffee produced by the coffee pot.  Note
       that while URL scheme names are case-independent, capitalization is
       important for German and thus the initial "K" must be encoded.
    4\. The "message/coffeepot" media type
       The entity body of a POST or BREW request MUST be of Content-Type
       "message/coffeepot". Since most of the information for controlling
       the coffee pot is conveyed by the additional headers, the content of
       "message/coffeepot" contains only a coffee-message-body:
       coffee-message-body = "start" | "stop"
    5\. Operational constraints
       This section lays out some of the operational issues with deployment
       of HTCPCP ubiquitously.
    5.1 Timing Considerations
       A robust quality of service is required between the coffee pot user
       and the coffee pot service.  Coffee pots SHOULD use the Network Time
       Protocol [NTP] to synchronize their clocks to a globally accurate
       time standard.
       Telerobotics has been an expensive technology. However, with the
       advent of the Cambridge Coffee Pot [CAM], the use of the web (rather
       than SNMP) for remote system monitoring and management has been
       proven.  Additional coffee pot maintenance tasks might be
       accomplished by remote robotics.
       Web data is normally static. Therefore to save data transmission and
       time, Web browser programs store each Web page retrieved by a user on
       the user's computer. Thus, if the user wants to return to that page,
       it is now stored locally and does not need to be requested again from
       the server. An image used for robot control or for monitoring a
       changing scene is dynamic. A fresh version needs to be retrieved from
       the server each time it is accessed.
    5.2 Crossing firewalls
       In most organizations HTTP traffic crosses firewalls fairly easily.
       Modern coffee pots do not use fire. However, a "firewall" is useful
       for protection of any source from any manner of heat, and not just
       fire. Every home computer network SHOULD be protected by a firewall
       from sources of heat. However, remote control of coffee pots is
    Masinter                     Informational                      [Page 6]
    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
       important from outside the home. Thus, it is important that HTCPCP
       cross firewalls easily.
       By basing HTCPCP on HTTP and using port 80, it will get all of HTTP's
       firewall-crossing virtues. Of course, the home firewalls will require
       reconfiguration or new versions in order to accommodate HTCPCP-
       specific methods, headers and trailers, but such upgrades will be
       easily accommodated. Most home network system administrators drink
       coffee, and are willing to accommodate the needs of tunnelling
    6\. System management considerations
       Coffee pot monitoring using HTTP protocols has been an early
       application of the web.  In the earliest instance, coffee pot
       monitoring was an early (and appropriate) use of ATM networks [CAM].
       The traditional technique [CAM] was to attach a frame-grabber to a
       video camera, and feed the images to a web server. This was an
       appropriate application of ATM networks. In this coffee pot
       installation, the Trojan Room of Cambridge University laboratories
       was used to give a web interface to monitor a common coffee pot.  of
       us involved in related research and, being poor, impoverished
       academics, we only had one coffee filter machine between us, which
       lived in the corridor just outside the Trojan Room. However, being
       highly dedicated and hard-working academics, we got through a lot of
       coffee, and when a fresh pot was brewed, it often didn't last long.
       This service was created as the first application to use a new RPC
       mechanism designed in the Cambridge Computer Laboratory - MSRPC2\. It
       runs over MSNL (Multi-Service Network Layer) - a network layer
       protocol designed for ATM networks.
       Coffee pots on the Internet may be managed using the Coffee Pot MIB
    7\. Security Considerations
       Anyone who gets in between me and my morning coffee should be
       Unmoderated access to unprotected coffee pots from Internet users
       might lead to several kinds of "denial of coffee service" attacks.
       The improper use of filtration devices might admit trojan grounds.
       Filtration is not a good virus protection method.

    RFC 2324                       HTCPCP/1.0                   1 April 1998
       Putting coffee grounds into Internet plumbing may result in clogged
       plumbing, which would entail the services of an Internet Plumber
       [PLUMB], who would, in turn, require an Internet Plumber's Helper.
       Access authentication will be discussed in a separate memo.
