Journal: DHCP versus HDCP...

Journal by Looce

So here I was, today, reading Slashdot, when I decided to make a comment on an article that had only one (at the time of pressing Reply).

Little did I know, Slashdot users like to point out the typos in others' comments... And yes, I did mean HDCP in my comment, because DHCP definitely does not have a video path. Another poster answered with "What about BOOTP?"; not realising what they meant, I thought the answer was from an unknowledgeable user. I apologise for the - perhaps inappropriate - reply.

Though it's nice to know that some people read through my DHCP and dismissed this little detail because the context said "protected video path" :)

Q: How many IBM CPU's does it take to execute a job? A: Four; three to hold it down, and one to rip its head off.

Working...
