This document describes the DoD Standard Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). There have been nine earlier editions of the ARPA TCP specification on which this standard is based, and the present text draws heavily from them. There have been many contributors to this work both in terms of concepts and in terms of text. This edition clarifies several details and removes the end-of-letter buffer-size adjustments, and redescribes the letter mechanism as a push function.                     TRANSMISSION CONTROL PROTOCOL                         DARPA INTERNET PROGRAM                         PROTOCOL SPECIFICATION                             September 1981                              prepared for               Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency                Information Processing Techniques Office                         1400 Wilson Boulevard                       Arlington, Virginia  22209                                   by                     Information Sciences Institute                   University of Southern California                           4676 Admiralty Way                   Marina del Rey, California  90291                          TABLE OF CONTENTS    PREFACE ........................................................ iii1.  INTRODUCTION ..................................................... 11.1  Motivation .................................................... 11.2  Scope ......................................................... 21.3  About This Document ........................................... 21.4  Interfaces .................................................... 31.5  Operation ..................................................... 32.  PHILOSOPHY ....................................................... 72.1  Elements of the Internetwork System ........................... 72.2  Model of Operation ............................................ 72.3  The Host Environment .......................................... 82.4  Interfaces .................................................... 92.5  Relation to Other Protocols ................................... 92.6  Reliable Communication ........................................ 92.7  Connection Establishment and Clearing ........................ 102.8  Data Communication ........................................... 122.9  Precedence and Security ...................................... 132.10 Robustness Principle ......................................... 133.  FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION ........................................ 153.1  Header Format ................................................ 153.2  Terminology .................................................. 193.3  Sequence Numbers ............................................. 243.4  Establishing a connection .................................... 303.5  Closing a Connection ......................................... 373.6  Precedence and Security ...................................... 403.7  Data Communication ........................................... 403.8  Interfaces ................................................... 443.9  Event Processing ............................................. 52GLOSSARY ............................................................ 79REFERENCES .......................................................... 85                                                           Jon Postel, Editor                     TRANSMISSION CONTROL PROTOCOL                         DARPA INTERNET PROGRAM                         PROTOCOL SPECIFICATION                            ...

So one of the cool old places on the Internet is not designed to be accessed from a web browser. ISCA BBS. This is from the EARLY days of the Internet when it was text-only and you have to access it with a text-only client called TELNET. ISCA BBS is old, and still exists, and a lot of people still hang out there. But now, you can access it via a browser!!Check it out here: http://iscaclient.llabmik.net/

4Chan has begun 'Operation Frozen Vengeance' - A cyber war against precipitative solids.Operation Frozen Vengeance says:Snow is the very definition of everything we hate. It's cold, it sucks to shovel, and it makes driving difficult. It is the very essence of the greatest threat to freedom. Snow has been trolling us for millenia and now it's time to troll it back. We have the chance to fight the first internet-weather war in history. We will not sit idly by.Snow will never stand a chance against these hactivists!

You are about to enter the Reality Zone, a place where truth is stranger than fiction, where knowledge is king, where myths are shattered and deceptions exposed. Those who enter can never return to the Twilight Zone from which they came.

A bunch of my friends are totally impressed with this new Playstation Home for the PS3. But I don't get it.Luckily, from what I've seen from other people, I was able to get logged in after my second attempt. But, I walked around, checked out a few things, even played a (winning!) game of bowling. (No thanks to fambizz who quit on the 10th frame cause I was beating him!) But maybe I'm too stupid. I just don't get what the point is.Some people are really into this idea. Obviously even some good friends of mine are into it and look at me funny when I say "Uh, so what?" about it. But what's the point? You walk around and can play some lame games (I'll tell you, Wii Sports Bowling is a lot more entertaining then the "Can I mash the button at the right moment?" bowling on PSHome. But beyond this, I just don't get the point. Then again, I didn't really "get" Club Caribe back in the day either (Same concept through QLink, an online service back in the early 1890's for the Commodore 64), which this seems to be an exact clone, with better graphics.I guess it's great for nerds with no social life, and no girlfriends, but other than that, why would I use the thing?So, maybe I'm too old, so I'll turn this over to my five year old, Benny. Let's see what he has to say about this:I asked him if it was ...

I needed a quick thing to show the user agent string of any browser, so whipped up this User Agent Tester. Yes, there's many out there just like this, but this one is mine, and you are more than welcome to use it!

Firefox is excellent, but by default it loads pretty slowly. From an architecture/engineering standpoint, this is a good thing because (Unlike Internet Explorer) this means that Firefox does not keep things in memory when it's not actually running.However, from an "I just want to use the thing" point of view, it's really annoying, especially when you open and close Firefox many times a day. Every time you start it up, it has to load EVERYTHING up before it starts working. This leads to rather slow load times, compared to Internet Explorer, which already keeps itself in memory when you are not using it.If you just want to use the thing, and you've got lots of memory on your machine, then there's a simple trick to tell Firefox to keep itself in memory after closing the Firefox window.In the Firefox shortcut (This seems to work for both Windows and Linux versions, and perhaps all versions, although I do not have anything else to test it on.), after the part that loads Firefox, add "/Prefetch:1" to it. On the windows version it would look like:"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" /Prefetch:1in the "Target:" field. (Right click on the Firefox shortcut and select Properties to get the target)Hit OK to properties, then load Firefox normally by clicking on the shortcut. First time you do this, it's going to load just as slowly as always. But after Firefox loads, close it. Once it's closed, open it again - You'll see a dramatic improvement in startup time, usually ...
