Didn't even think of that. I know very little about networking. I'll stick to coding.

NO you got it right.

The middle 42 (or so) years of my working career were IT, but at the end I DID drive 18-wheeler. Quite a difference from wearing three piece suits for much of my life; then embark on one of the dirtiest jobs around.

Oh, the first four years were as a commercial pilot (NOT airlines, but general aviation and corporate stuff).

Jack of all trades and master of none???

Boowho??

You explained it quite well for IWriteCode. He is correct in absolutes, 8 bits always equal 1 byte. I just use the 10 to 1 ratio and that's close enough for government work.

Although, if we REALLY want to get into it, we could start talking about ISI-OSI "onion" AKA, the 6 level TCP/IP stack, etc, etc, etc ad nauseum!!

But we better just let go of this, before some readers are ready to barf at all this techno-speak!!

I use ATT GoPhone, $45 month plus tax. Unlimited voice, text and data. Data throttled after 3 gig. Higher price for higher throttle level. Set up to auto pay and $5 discount.
