There are lots and lots of things which can be picked on with Warriors of
the net. The whole way TCP connections are handled (ie. listen, connect,
keepalives, etc) can not be addressed and keep it as 'easy' to understand
Also, since when does everybody use a proxy/firewall? :) I guess it's
just demonstrating for 'bla bla' company, but still, it makes it sound
like this is for everybody, when it should have said "Some businesses
don't use a firewall.." or something.
But yah, as I said, thousands of things can be knitpicked about this.
It's good for newbies though methinks, just not for us :) For what it is,
it's fairly well made.
