|Comment||Steve: I can't begin to tell you how I appreciate the promptness, courtesy and clarity of your answer - you have saved me from launching a hopeless attempt at this download. I was 99% certain that my notions were correct, but something told me to double-check before I took the plunge and am I ever glad I did - there's no way I could've let my one & only phone line be tied up for the better part of a day! I am well aware of the distinction between bits and bytes (before retiring in '92, I was for nearly 20 years a COBOL Programmer in a variety of batch-processing environments) but I never dreamed that the speed quoted to me was measured in the former rather than the latter - I attributed the variations from "b" to "B", etc. as mere carelessness. Live and learn! Thanks so much for your invaluable help. As for "Good Luck" with my update, I'm afraid that's a moot point - under my present circumstances it ain't gonna happen - but thanks anyway.|
I can answer any question related to the internet. I will answer any question regarding the history of the internet to understanding how it works. I am willing to aid new users in understanding any aspect of the internet and can also help more advanced users with any problems they are having. I can also help with general networking and computer issues. If the question is related to information technology I will be able to help.
I hold two degrees related to computer science and engineering. I have volunteered in several libraries and schools with the aim of helping new users get to grips with computers and the internet.
