Area networks keeping up with their peers

Until recently, the only way to move data between machines was via a
floppy disk or, as I wrote last week, by putting the machines next to each
other and connecting them with a 6-foot parallel cable. But I just
installed a LAN (local area network) or, in our case, a FAN, "family area
network." Now the machines can talk to each other, which is sometimes more
than I can say about my family.

That just warms the depths of my hearts.. Now how soon to we get
Fackers..Family HAckers (comming in from a Fateway(Family Gateway) from
the INternet (satans spawning ground), destroying the very fabric of our
sacred family structure.
