Trackers Second Review Response

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Murray Cooper, Sep 30, 2003.

  1. If you plan to pick nits, then you need sharper tweezers:
    ADSL = Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (much higher bandwidth in the
    direction TO the subscriber than FROM the subscriber)

    SDSL = Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line (equal bandwidth TO and FROM the
    subscriber)

    Both are asychronous at the copper end.

  2. It's Asymetric, not Asynchronic or Asynchronous. If it were Asynchronous (or
    Asynchronic as you put it....?), that would indicate that it has something
    to do with timing, which it doesn't.

    I knew what I meant. :) Sorry, I had just finished taking the
    Security+ test, several questions about Symmetric/Assymetric
    encryption had the word in my brain.

  4. It may or may not be old hat; nonetheless, that is the
    rule Lu Tze was mixing up in wondering about the
    placement of the adverb.

    It never *looks* awkward to avoid splitting the
    infinitive in writing, and in fact one should strive to
    avoid splitting infinitives in writing. It sometimes
    sounds a little awkward in spoken English, but only
    because most people are unable to rearrange their
    sentences artfully to avoid the awkwardness.

  6. I had always thought it was asynchronous, but all of the
    web search returns have it as asymetric (which actually
    makes more sense to me). It seems they have changed
    it without informing me (or asking for my permission I
    might add) :eek:( They did that with the V in DVD too
    some time ago.

    What's a nitpicker to do....

    oh yay, lets get into the DVD debate, DVD is clearly Digitally Versatile
    Disc, and not Digital Video Disc as so many movie fans think, it doesnt just
    hold video, that would be crazy hehe ;D

    oh ok, forgive my ignorance, but we all know a dialup connection runs over
    a, twisted pair, telephone line. And Cable runs through coax, so how do they
    get the cable line from the provider to the subscriber w/o digging up the
    whole road ?

    Actually, all they need to do, if they are going to run the line
    underground, is dig up the communication easement. In my area of the
    Pacific Northwest, this is a trunk run just a few feet underground
    that follows either along the side of the road or down the center
    (silly, but sometimes they plant the trunk and then road plans change)
    and supports cable and telephone services. If they thought ahead,
    there are fish lines and empty conduits already in place, so they
    would only need to access the junctions, which are either above ground
    or in access pits.

  11. Well, it could be the same as our local conditions - for a time, with not
    enough copper from the CO to our neighborhood, the neighborhood lines were
    "concentrated" onto a digital feed back to the CO. Couldn't get xDSL,
    couldn't get ISDN. For either, you need analog from the house to the
    location of the xDSL/ISDN equipment - and they wouldn't put that equipment
    anywhere but the CO.

    Thankfully, Verizon has now laid (strung?) additional raw copper to our
    'hood, and digital service is now possible. (my gawd - did I just say
    something positive about Verizon?)
