    Started school, Have a good teacher!

    My teacher is a crazy dude, very animated and entertaining. The director of the computer networking classes is the most boring person with a Ben Stein like tone/voice, he also teaches nights.

    Gonna get our own systems to work on, install XP, customize the look how we want, run what we want(F@H ) just no porn on the desktop and no games, but then he says he wont do anyhting if we play games, as long as we dont distract others, but I didnt empy my bank account to play video games, and I dont expect to have much time to.

    He jumped around explaining IP, TCP/IP, DNS, Binary, hexadecimal, getting past the school firewall and then basic PC to router to modem layout.

    Never paid any attention to Binary, hexadecimal, or what TCP/IP stood for and how IP addresses did there thing, or what different IP classes meant. With what I know about PCs this course is still gonna be tough, but I should leanr a ton, or fail hard. LOL



    He was explaining how to get to a site that it blocked on the firewall while we were talking about binary and hexadecimal, but I cant make that work, not even fully sure of what he is saying.

    I took SG's IP - 63.217.30.70 and converted each group to binary and hexadecimal, tried putting them into the browser alot of ways, but it didnt work. Help?

    Got it. 63.217.30.70 = 0x3FD91E46 Hex, now why when I convert each number on its own, 63, 217, 30, 70, does it come up 3FD91E46. Where does that 0x come in?

    0x is to represent that it in hexadecimal format, for example it not really a 3, but 3F which = 63

    But the hex way around a firewall isnt as great if you go to click links, because then it goes back to whatever IP or .com name the site has, so the firewall blocks it.
