SoylentNews is people

Discussion on the advantages of TCP vs UDP (and vice versa) has a history which is almost as long as the eternal Linux-vs-Windows debate. As I have long been a supporter of the point of view that both UDP and TCP have their own niches (see, for example, [NoBugs15]), here are my two cents on this subject.

Note for those who already know the basics of IP and TCP: please skip to the 'Closing the Gap: Improving TCP Interactivity' section, as you still may be able to find a thing or two of interest.

It's a primer, or a refresher, or a skip. We have all kinds here. Enjoy, or don't.

    I thought his talk and the comments about TCP/IP and UDP in the talk were interesting. That's all. On the slides are a few diagrams of their setups. I don't need any help with anything as I'm not affiliated with them and have no project I'm currently working on like this. If I want something from those on Soylent News, I won't be bashful or beat around the bush about asking. I quite believe these people are smarter and more experienced than me concerning networking. As far as the details as to what they did, he didn't get into it much more than what I wrote. I can see what they did, though. I'll try to write some further details and thoughts to devlux's reply tomorrow after I've had a night's sleep.
