"He's fast. He's strong. He's TCP/IP. And he's got your address."

A little over 11 hrs left.

I know this. I know this. And if I fail, it's not the end of the world. That's what I need to keep telling myself.

Anyway, send all the luck you can my way at 2 PM Pacific time.

And hopefully the next post to my LJ will be the triumphant one.

Saw a really hilarious short flick tonight about the internet and how it works.

you can get it at www.warriorsofthe.net

It's not perfect (most notably us picky networking sorts picked up at least two wrong things) but it's a pretty basic introduction of how routers and the Internet work together to give you a web page. And it's a good explanation of why you need people that work on routers and switches..'cause we, at a very basic level, make the internet go.

And it's worth it just to see the router switch, which screams, "He shoots, he scores!" after sending one packet on its way. :)
