Let us learn from those who came before us, and let not the loss of their lives have been in vain.

I live and have been raised in South-western PA.  I grew  up on a small farm in Shade township, Somerset county PA.  My hometown, Central City, is just outside Somerset and Johnstown, and is roughly a mile *as the crow flies* from the Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville.  When I was young we used to ride dirt-bikes [illegally, I shamefully admit] in the old PBS Strip Mine, the site of the flight 93 crash.  Also, the apartment I moved out of last week (in Stoystown) was roughly 6 miles *as the crow flies* from Quecreek.

gr33nd4yg1rl and aiman1422 [and more importantly those bickering over this] would be better to take this offline, but should keep in mind where they go with this.

My brother-in-law works for Deliotte & Touche in New York.  If you'll notice in my picture, I'm proudly holding my son at liberty island.  More importantly (my apologies as my head is blocking the South Tower), you'll notice the buildings in the background.  My brother-in-law was spared as he was called to Newark New Jersey early that morning instead of his regular office.  However, my friend's sister-in-law was lost in the Pentagon.

You may ask why I included the Quecreek incident.  We realize tradgedy, we must learn to deal with the pain, and we must learn to band together rather than work against each other.  9 fine men were spared because south-western PA has learned just a little more about pulling together, throwing out our differences, and realizing that those differences have no real bearing when it comes to a life spared, a life lost, or a life wasted.

Let us learn from those who came before us, and let not the loss of their lives have been in vain.

Enforcer - yes, you are a little excessive.  No one has commented on your *Direct and Blunt approach*, so I'd remind you that a little more courteous and discrete approach may get you further in this world.  It's not been in my common experience to see your type of approach acheive a lot for a person.  If you think that you'll talk all the people who use these types of forums into making the time to read *every page*, you might find yourself a little disappointed.  If that's not it, what exactly are you trying to acheive?
These are meant to be friendly, informative collumns.  Let's keep the tone a little lighter if we can.  Everyone's entitled to posting their opinions, but we should all be careful not to step on other's toes when doing so.

Tech Ranger - Active Directory (AD) is probably a different example than you would want to use in this instance.  Since the question asks about a TCP/IP Workstation, and not a node who is a member of an AD-based domain, the only requirements would be A, B, & D.  AD does require DNS to function, for DDNS registration as well as functioning of all 'site-aware' components.  Since the Site Info as well as Service Location records are also stored in DNS, this is a requirement for AD to function;  However, in the case of a simple TCP/IP workstation, DNS and WINS are not required.  Without a default gateway, reliance on broadcast increases.

Does this clear anything up, or did I muddy the waters even more?

I think it's just a case of many people only reading the first page, which contains the question and the first "so-many" responses.  Many folks just don't have the time to read through all responses - many times the answer is on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th page.

Just my $0.02

Flext - is there more than one possible answer?  Just dragging out is no fun. : )

Gee, so complicated, I just wanted to find out if anyone rides a cow to work...

VERY good WP.  I'll give your team a BaJillion points.

I concur - if we're talking about message content [encoding], then D is out of the question.  BUT, I think as the question sits, it asks for a "protocol" - dictating that the answer is "D" - Simple Mail Transport PROTOCOL.

I think it's a no-brainer.  A similar question would be "Of the following, which is the most common automobile?"
A)  Cow
B)  Tomato
C)  Moon Rocks
D)  1975 Chevy Vega

I hope my point wasn't too ambiguous in that I was trying to show that there's really only one choice.  Perhaps a better worded question would be:
"Of the following, which is my favorite color?
a)  Blue

If that doesn't show my point, I'll resort to:
If a plane crashes in Connecticut, two miles from the border of California, where do they bury the survivors?

Biggest Congrats to you.  Savor the moment and soak up the fame (and some brew while you're at it).

Glad to hear you found it enjoyable.  I would say anyone would enjoy this test if they've properly prepared - so you've earned it.  You're positive proof that hard work pays off.

Congrats again big MCSE!  Go update all your tags and profiles!:cool:

PS - how will you celebrate?

Best of luck, you'll do fine.  Would love to hear what you think of the test.Wink

With the tests you've taken already, you'll enjoy taking this one.Smiley

Understood and agreed.  I didn't get any of that exact type of question on the Net+ exam, and our company's standards are normally a 'little' shorter than that for machine names, but I agree totally that this is in the list of 'Tested Material' on the Net+ exam.
13  CompTIA / A+ forum / Monday's Question of the Day on: July 08, 2002, 02:11:56 PM
Someguy:  very valid point.  I never even took the time (laziness set in early today) to count them out.

Anyone playing devil's advocate would ask whether '_'s [underscores] were 'special characters'.:confused:
15  CompTIA / A+ forum / Monday's Question of the Day on: July 08, 2002, 07:31:13 AM
I'm choosing B & C as well.  I was close to choosing A also, but I would rank it along with the quotes (") listed in the excerpt from TechNet below:

4. On the Identification tab, enter a name for your computer and your workgroup,
  and then click OK.
   NOTE: The computer name must be unique for each computer on the network and
  should be no more than 15 characters in length. In small networks, the
  workgroup name should normally be the same for each computer so that all
  computers are visible in the same workgroup when browsing. Avoid using spaces
  and the following characters in computer and workgroup names:
      / \ * , . " @

I would think that even though in some versions of BIND spaces and underscores are illegal, we're talking about NetBIOS here, in which underscores will work.  (I always thought spaces worked too, but this [article] seems to state otherwise...)
