    Given the lack of support for Banyan Vines, Token Ring and other legacy networking protocols, what's the chance of using Ethernet without TCP/IP and all it entails and thus what's the point of that point? :D
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    The point of that was to address an earlier comment that Ethernet provides error correction - which is certainly not a part of the lower comm layers. In fact, TCP/IP doesn't provide error correction - merely a retry mechanism.

    TCP/IP isn't the be-all/end-all. For the last few years I've been involved in an engineering activity centred around UDP.

    :D

    Funny, I never get a failed/partial file download because of missing packets ;-)

    I think you're pointing out the minor shortcomings in a system which have no impact whatsoever on the application being discussed :D

    Downloading of files and handling of hard disk is not real time activity so packats can be resent any number of times. The checksum of the file and the packets will tell you if there is a need for resend.

    Very true.
    They also tend to use technical arguments which they patently misunderstand to prove that something which works very well ought not to :D
