FidoNet
FIDONET is a worldwide computer network that is used for communication between bulletin board systems (BBSes). It uses a store-and-forward system to exchange private (email) and public (forum) messages between the BBSes in the network, as well as other files and protocols in some cases. The FidoNet
FidoNet
system was based on a number of small interacting programs. Only one of these interacted with the BBS
BBS
system directly and was the only portion that had to be ported to support other BBS software. This greatly eased porting, and FidoNet

was one of the few networks that was widely supported by almost all BBS

Email Attachment
An EMAIL ATTACHMENT is a computer file sent along with an email message . One or more files can be attached to any email message, and be sent along with it to the recipient.

Email
standards such as MIME don't specify any file size limits, but in practice email users will find that they can't successfully send very large files across the Internet. This is because of a number of potential limits: * Mail systems often arbitrarily limit the size their users are allowed to submit. * A message will often pass through several mail transfer agents to reach the recipient

Power User
A POWER USER or EXPERIENCED USER is a computer user who uses advanced features of computer hardware, operating systems, programs, or web sites which are not used by the average user. A power user may not have extensive technical knowledge of the systems they use and is not capable of computer programming or system administration , but is rather characterised by the competence or desire to make the most intensive use of computer programs or systems. In enterprise software systems, "Power User" may be a formal role given to an individual who is not a programmer , but who is a specialist in business software . Often these are people who retain their normal user job role, but also function in testing, training, and first-tier support of the enterprise software. Users may erroneously label themselves as power users when they are less than fully competent

Network Address
A NETWORK ADDRESS is an identifier for a node or network interface of a telecommunications network . Network addresses are designed to be unique across the network, although some networks allow for local , private addresses or locally administered addresses that may not be unique. In some cases, terminal nodes may have more than one network address; for example, each link interface may be uniquely identified. Further, because protocols are frequently layered , more than one protocol's network address can occur in any particular network interface or node and more than one type of network address may be used in any one network

Handshaking
In information technology , telecommunications , and related fields, HANDSHAKING is an automated process of negotiation that dynamically sets parameters of a communications channel established between two entities before normal communication over the channel begins. It follows the physical establishment of the channel and precedes normal information transfer. The handshaking process usually takes place in order to establish rules for communication when a computer sets about communicating with a foreign device. When a computer communicates with another device like a modem, printer, or network server, it needs to handshake with it to establish a connection. Handshaking
Handshaking
can negotiate parameters that are acceptable to equipment and systems at both ends of the communication channel, including information transfer rate , coding alphabet , parity , interrupt procedure, and other protocol or hardware features

Intel 8088
The INTEL 8088 ("eighty-eighty-eight", also called IAPX 88) microprocessor is a variant of the Intel 8086 . Introduced on July 1, 1979, the 8088 had an 8-bit external data bus instead of the 16-bit bus of the 8086. The 16-bit registers and the one megabyte address range were unchanged, however. In fact, according to the Intel documentation, the 8086 and 8088 have the same execution unit (EU)—only the bus interface unit (BIU) is different. The original IBM PC was based on the 8088

Lingua Franca
A LINGUA FRANCA (/ˌlɪŋɡwə ˈfræŋkə/ ), also known as a BRIDGE LANGUAGE, COMMON LANGUAGE, TRADE LANGUAGE or VEHICULAR LANGUAGE, is a language or dialect systematically used to make communication possible between people who do not share a native language or dialect, particularly when it is a third language that is distinct from both native languages. Lingua francas have developed around the world throughout human history, sometimes for commercial reasons (so-called "trade languages") but also for cultural, religious, diplomatic and administrative convenience, and as a means of exchanging information between scientists and other scholars of different nationalities. The term originates with one such language, Mediterranean Lingua Franca

Internet
and similar computer networks . It is commonly known as TCP/IP because the original protocols in the suite are the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and the Internet Protocol (IP). It is occasionally known as the DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) MODEL, because the development of the networking model was funded by DARPA
DARPA
, an agency of the United States Department of Defense . The Internet protocol suite provides end-to-end data communication specifying how data should be packetized, addressed, transmitted, routed and received. This functionality is organized into four abstraction layers which are used to classify all related protocols according to the scope of networking involved
