"I’m a pauper."
"Congratulations. Boy or girl?"

"You slay me," said the condemned man to the hangman.
"That’s noose to me," was the reply.

"Are you psychic?"
"Yes, seer."

A young lady while out walking heard, for the first time, of her mother’s intention to marry again, and she was obliged to sit right down and cry about it. She could no go a step-farther.

Just Jake Talkin'

I suppose it took more than a little convincin' ta get folks ta give up on the horse and buggy. More than anything it was prob'ly the idea of bein' comfortable with a known mode of gettin' from here to there.

Automobiles aren't entirely the blessin' that proponents of that industry would have liked ever'one to believe, but they did offer a lot of advantages.

The one thing that changed the most was the amount a time folks spend just walkin'. Nowadays, a visit to a neighbor on the other side of the block warrants takin' the car. A three or four block walk would seem outa the question.

'Course one of the big advantages of car ownin' is ya don't have ta clean out the stall. Another is if ya leave the car in the garage, you don't have ta keep puttin' in fuel just so ya have somethin' ta clean up later. And, the flies aren't near as plentiful.

This is some fact, but mostly,

Intro to the Internet

Where do all these service come from?
Service like Web pages, FTP sites, News groups, E-Mail, Ect., are all individual function of these computer we call servers (or hosts). Some servers don't have many features at all, while other servers have all kinds of services available.

Luckily for you and me, the servers know who they are, and they know where the other computers are as well. When you make a request for a Web page, the servers work together to help you find the server where that Web page exists. If one computer is down between you and the server you're asking for, the other computers will help to find a path for your request to travel on. Once the path is finally resolved, the connection is made, and you see your Web page. The same is true in regards to most of the requests over the Internet.

In Review. . .
The Internet is a huge collection of computers world wide. They are connected to each other by a method that guarantees access (provided that computer is operational and connected to the network). There are servers (also referred to as "hosts") that provide services of all types. No one person or group owns the Internet, yet there are many committees and organizations that supervise its development evolution.
