Some of us round here are old enough that computing wasn't even a degree

This book


covers networking from a practical, get it working, rather than 
theoretical, these are the ISO levels, viewpoint. Sadly it doesn't cover 
IPv6, nor is there likely be another edition that does, but it covers 
day to day IPv4 well enough.

[Declaration of interest: yes, that is a quote from me on the front 
cover, and I got my copy free. No, I don't get a percentage, but I will 
be getting some mulled wine from the author on Sunday.]
