Okay, Peeps…with Blogger going down last week and everybody loosing post and comments, there were a lot of reasons and excuses floating around the Ethernet. Many of them used acronyms…acronyms we see all the time but do not know what they really mean.
So, due to my constant search to help us all be more aware, intelligent and confident, I devoted many, many minutes researching the meaning of these acronyms. I feel very confident that these will help you become more informed and confident when reading or discussing technical computer issues.
