<networking> /god-zil'*-gram/ (From Japan's national hero and
datagram) 1. A network packet that in theory is a
broadcast to every machine in the universe. The typical
case is an IP datagram whose destination IP address is
[255.255.255.255]. Fortunately, few gateways are foolish
enough to attempt to implement this case!
2. A network packet of maximum size. An IP Godzillagram has
65,536 octets. Compare super source quench.
