The explanation of the Modem/Router is without a doubt the most thorough yet simplest and easiest to understand I have ever heard. Dave Hamilton is reminds me of a college professor I had MANY years ago. She had a wealth of knowledge but was able to share her expertise in a manner all the students could grasp, digest & remember. This is such a great podcast. I am a GIT. (Geek In Training)

W00t! I'm glad to hear that. Thanks, @lcc0256. And we're very happy to have you and other GITs here with MGG. After all, I think we're *all* GITs, aren't we? 🙂

One friend advised - turn to essay- diplomas writers. They write works for students - and they’re scribbling something to me, then you will change it, correct the mistakes - and “for show” will do. I chose this service, but you know, all the same, I would like that they write my essay in a high-quality, and not a blunder. Do you understand what I'm talking about?
