Break From Networking

Will continue my explanation of TCP and UDP protocols on the transportation layer soon. So for now, enjoy the dancing cat.   ~600kb

Tcp Vs Udp [part 1]

In this entry, I'll be talking about the TCP and UDP protocols in the transportation layer and how they work. I did tell everyone in my previous blog that I would teach them some things from my networking class, didn't I?   Why would any application use UDP? What is the “cost” of all this reliability and flow control of TCP? Streaming media, real-time multiplayer games and voice over IP (VoIP) applications that do not require reliability mechanisms and may even be hindered by them.   TCP provides: Reliable delivery Error checking Flow control Congestion control Ordered delivery Connection establishment Applications: HTTP
FTP
SMTP
Telnet
MSN Messenger
  UDP provides: Unreliable delivery No error checking No flow control No congestion control No ordered delivery No connection establishment Applications: DNS (usually)
DHCP
RTP (Real-Time Protocol)
VoIP (Voice over IP)
TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol)
  While we're at it, let's take a look at the breakdown of TCP and UDP protocols.   What do you notice looking at the UDP protocol? No frills, barebones transport protocol. Destination and Source Ports
Length and Checksum (used for error checking)
Connectionless transport: No “handshaking” (no connection establishment) as with TCP
Unreliable delivery
No error checking
No flow control
No congestion control
No ordered delivery
  Why would an application developer choose UDP rather than TCP? Applications that use UDP can tolerate some data loss: Streaming video
VoIP (Voice over IP)
Application decides whether or not to resend entire file: TFTP
  No connection state: UDP does not maintain connection state as does TCP (coming)
Used for reliability and flow control.
Server can support more active clients when not maintaining state information
Small packet header overhead: TCP header has 20 bytes of overhead.
UDP header has only 8 bytes of overhead
  Note: Multimedia Applications and UDP There is an issue (controversy) with multimedia applications over UDP.
UDP offers no congestion control (as we will see with TCP)
Congestion control is needed to prevent the network from entering and staying in a congested state.
If all applications were using UDP, because of congestion, very few UDP packets would be delivered and this would also cause TCP traffic rates to dramatically decrease.
Many applications give you a choice of TCP or UDP.

Streaming Media On My Xbox!

Finally! I figured out why I couldn't configure my Xbox 360 to stream media files on my laptop (of course, on the same LAN). The router I was using blocked my laptop from communicating with my Xbox 360 (never figured out why) so I just replaced it. I used to have to burn DVD's, then watch on my DVD player to watch on my tv, but now I can just stream from my laptop!   Currently watching some Myth Busters, season seven!

G U I L T Y G E A R ! ! !

WOOOO!!! Finally got myself a copy of Guilty Gear X2#Reload. It's very nostalgic to me because it was the game I LOVED to play before I moved away from Japan. I beat cakes as Dizzy. Dizzy is my favorite <3. So here's a few images (extracted from the game) of Dizzy!

List Of Good Animu

Updated, added a few to the list on Sunday, the 26th of September 2010   Below is a list of my most recently watched anime, along with some of my favorites, and other good recommendations. For more information about any of these, copy/paste the name and go to google/wikipedia. If you have google chrome (like me) you can simple high light -> right click -> "Search Google 'x' " option.   Haibane renmei** Nea 7 Gunbuster Vandread Saga Lain Mahou Raba Comic Party Berserk* Rahxephon Grave of the fireflies Mai Hime* Mai Otome Azumanga Daioh* Escaflowne* Ima, Sokoni Iru Boku Uchuu no Stellvia* Read or Die Jungle wa itsumo hare nochi guu Saikano* Kimagure orange road Hellsing Midori no Hibi Golden Boy Akira metropolitan Kannazuki no Miko* Ai Mai mi Strawberry egg Ayashi no Ceres* Kidou Tenshi Angelic Layer Revolutionary Girl Utena Jin-Roh The Slayers Suzuka Trinity Blood Peace Maker Kurogane REC Rozen Maiden DearS Shakugan no Shana** Green Green Tv Ninja Scroll Ichigo 100% Kono Minikuku Mo Utsukushi Sekai Flame of Recca Kite Maburaho Futakoi* Futakoi Alternative** -Update- Ah!

An anime I would rate highly. Two asterisks means they're even higher on the list of good anime, my favorites. They're all good, but those with the asterisks are the ones I liked better.

Gender Confusion... Wat

It has come to my attention that people think I'm female.   Ok slow down. I have just ONE x and ONE y. I'm male. A man, a boy, whatever you want to call it. Have you been confused/tricked by my signatures/avatar? It's simple. I'd rather be looking at girls than guys, so I make my av/sig's focused around females.     That is all.

Ccna/p/e

I've enrolled in a Cisco Networking Academy (college, lol) and I'll be posting interesting things I learn from that class in my blog. It's the basics (CiS 81, Networking Fundamentals) so a lot of the things will be review for me.   First thing I found really awesome on my first day was this program. A VERY powerful program for emulating a network (network simulator). It shows everything.

Dj Werd

I found a really cool DJ the other day while I was riding the internet waves (surfing internets). A lot of his music is really amazing and put together well. I'd classify him as Hip Hop, Trip Hop, and MAYBE a little bit of techno. Check him out here   I'm currently hooked to this track.

I Will Not Help Translate For You.

Just for reference, I don't do Eng->Jap or Jap->Eng translations. If I were to do that, I'd be doing it all day long, and I just don't want to be 'the translator'

Projects

I have two projects currently running right now One is currently stalled because I do not have a qualified graphical artist (see this thread). It is a website I'll be making for myself, a homepage on a friends USA-Based server.   My second protect is finding registry entries in Windows XP and editing them to my liking. I'm stuck on renaming fields in the red box. (If you know how, please let me know/push in the right direction).   Red box issue
