Of course, you know I couldn’t stop with just doing the TCP header: IP Header in Lego(TM) Now why am I wasting all that space on the building plate in each case? TCP/IP in Lego(TM) The use of color here really highlights certain portions of the packet header. Actually I wish I had a couple of more colors available. Lego(TM) Byte, Nibble, and Bit So while I tried to use Beige exclusively for size fields, Red for reserved bits, Yellow for checksums, and so on, I ultimately ended up having to use these colors for other fields as well– for example, the yellow sequence number fields in the TCP header.

OpenXcom | Open-source reimplementation of the original X-Com 10 Easy Steps to a Complete Understanding of SQL Too many programmers think SQL is a bit of a beast. It is one of the few declarative languages out there, and as such, behaves in an entirely different way from imperative, object-oriented, or even functional languages (although, some say that SQL is also somewhat functional). I'm writing SQL every day and embracing SQL with my Open Source Software jOOQ. I thus feel compelled to bring the beauty of SQL a bit closer to those of you still struggling with it. readers who have already worked with SQL but never completely understood itreaders who know SQL well but have never really thought about its syntaxreaders who want to teach SQL to others This tutorial will focus on SELECT statements only. 1. Get this into your head first. SELECT first_name, last_name FROM employees WHERE salary > 100000 Easy to understand. What do we learn from this? So if this is so simple, what's the problem? Forget about all that. 2. For simplicity, not all SQL clauses are listed. There are three things to note: 3. 4.
