Howdy pardner. My name is Frederick. My
friends call me Farmer Fred cause Iím a down-home sort of
olícoot and I donít take easy with high brow technology. Iíd
rather whip out my shotgun and shoot those dang buzz words
than try to remember them all. So in these articles, Iíve
tried to explain technology in words and pictures that my
olídog might even understand. Simple easy explanations. So
simple, that sometimes my explanations might be a bit
simplistic. I just might slip-past a complex tidbit simply
because itís easier to understand the whole barnyard picture
without worrying about where the darned chicken is gonna lay
eggs. My intent is to give ya the foundation ya need to go
read those other articles filled with those $20 words.

tried. So after all that reading, sweating and
self-flagellation, I eventually figured it out.
