where DSL and meadow grass collide

welcome December 21, 2008

Welcome to my new outpost on the web.  After reading blogs for years, I thought I would jump on the bandwagon.  I’m an ex-techie and paralegal who now does shift work for the heck of it.  This seems like a good outlet.

You may be wondering about the blog name.  If you’ve ever spent time out in the country, you’ve seen bunches of clover thriving around the meadows and fields.  Even in the city, clover peeks out from cracks in the sidewalk.  Since I’m practically writing to you from a cow pasture, there’s that.  Also, Wikipedia says that the term “node”, when referenced in computer networking, means

In communication networks, a node (Latin nodus, ‘knot’) is an active electronic device that is attached to a network, and is capable of sending, receiving, or forwarding information over a communications channel.[1] A node is a connection point, either a redistribution point or a communication endpoint (some terminal equipment).

In network theory, the term node may refer a point in a network topology at which lines intersect or branch[2].

That’s all the cleverness I could muster this afternoon.  I’d like to contribute what I can to the local Floyd blog scene.  Hope you enjoy your visit.
