Hmm, having worked in 'networking' for well over 30 years, I am of the opinion that 'the network' includes the computers that make it up. A pile of CAT5 (see, told you I was old, else I'd have typed CAT6) does not a network make.
That's ok. I've been building, designing and programming computer stuff for 38 years. But I lost my memory this morning and have reverted to age 8. Sorry about that. A good nights sleep should set me right. -- Don't feed trolls--it only makes them grow!
