Looks pretty much like a Lord of the Rings parody to me, doesn't it? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

I've heard of Token Rings (and I made the same connection when I first heard of them) and I know what Ethernet is (to a degree).<P>I don't really 100% get all the networking jargon, but I know a joke when I see one... and that's all that counts <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"><P>Peace;

What is a token ring, Mr Punktiger?
I got most of the other "network jargon" terms, but this one puzzled me.
Could you maybe explain it please? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

I quote my other post:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>
...I will now be writing and updating this comic for my own amusement, when ever the feeling moves me...
<HR></BLOCKQUOTE></B><P>So, even though I knew many people wouldn't get all of the jokes in this comic(I'm in a networking class, it's not even normal computer-ese), it was funny to me.<P>don't worry though, I'll usually keep my jokes understandable to all (even if you don't find it funny) because computers and their techno-babbel is only a small part of my life.<P>expect plenty of basic, low level, low brow, vulgar (and hopefully hilarious) stuff to come as well.<P>
and to help you TDS,
Token ring is just a set up for a network of computers. it uses as "token" that the group of computers pass along (in a ring) to each other and only the computer holding the token can "speak" (use the phone line/cable). it cuts down on cross computer interferance.<P>so hence my "Lord of the Token rings" parody.
