Zen: Praise the lord and pass the peas, I UNDERSTOOD that! Now, I know how much I really do not care.

Maybe tomorrow we could have a history of telecommunications posting.
Simplex, duplex, async, bisync, SDLC, HDLC, X.25, X.32 etc.
Perhaps Ms.Thang could lead the discussion. Beer

How about a little hexadecimal arithmetic?

I don't know anything about hexadecimal arithmetic, but I do know there are 10 types of people in the world - those who understand binary, and those who don't.

Great joke!!!!  For the folks who don't get it 10 in base 2 (how computers count) is equal to 2 in base 10 (how we all count). Now you get the
nerd joke.

And, this is why Tech Talk has its own special section. As with The Octagon, its subject matter is best talked about behind closed doors so we do not scare the normal people away.

Normal?  On a tech site Geeks are the norm  LOL. As Zen will verify we have hardly started being as Geeky as we are capable of. Want to know about the seven layer OSI model? Joking aside for a tech forum we are pretty nice to non technical people compared to how we would argue
among ourselves.

Uh, gee, thanks, Zed, but I will pass on knowing more about the seven layer OSI model. I am still trying to figure out the intricacies of seven-layer dip and the best chips to use with it, ya know?
Serously, I appreciate it whenever you guys take the time to good-naturedly walk us non-nerds through something. You are such good sports. Gracias! Beer

OMFG this thread has to be the funniest thing I have read all week. I have stayed away from logging on lately but just had to so I could comment.

Here is my simple way of teaching it.

You have the post office connecting your house to others (internet)
Inside of your house (IP address)
You have a filing cabinet (computer)
In there you have files (packets)
In those you have letters (bytes)
That have words on them (bits)

If you want to say something to someone else in the world (request a; webpage, picture on a page, send an email, etc.), you right words on a letter in your filling cabinet, in your house and put them in the mail. Now here is the different part. You have to tell the mailman that you have something to send and he has to agree to take it. So your filling cabinet (unbeknownst to you) sends out files to the mailman letting him know were you live and in return he sends you files letting you know that he got your files. Then the mailman and everyone on your street/ town/ city/ state/ continent starts talking to your filing cabinet. If your internet is working, you should always receive more requests than you send out. If your internet is not working, than no one responds to your files and only your modem (router) sends you stuff so you send more than you receive.

I hope this helps
