ADSL is a fully digital, dedicated connection to the telephone system that provides download speeds up to 9 Mbps and upload speeds up to 1Mbps over PSTN lines. Internet service providers must support ADSL. The most common ADSL installation includes and ADSL modem connected to a telephone jack and to a network interface card (NIC) in the computer.
PSTN is the oldest, slowest, and most common phone connection based on twisted-pair copper wires carrying analog data. This technology uses RJ-ll connectors. Computers require modems to convert digital signals from the computer to the anlog waveforms that travel across PSTN lines. PSTN phone lines take analog samples of sound 2400 times/second.
ISDN is a communications standard for sending voice, video, and data over digital telephone lines or telephone wires. It supports data transfer rates of 64 Kbps and can support two lines at once (calles B channels), which allow you to use both lines to transfer data; this gives you data rates of 128 Kbps.
Wow! I had no idea ISDN was so much better than PSTN.
A word translated through many different languages to become the jumbled up mess that it is today. The word started in Marshville NC by a man named Ford. It then moved from Marshville to Louisiana by word of mouth and then transfered to California by a friend.
Not much is known about this word except for a few theories:
1.) People believe this certain word has magical abilities, enabling the speaker to have unmatched strength and a poison waffle thrower.
2.) Others believe the word was just made up so people could give it their own meaning.
3.) Some belive it is just a word created by a fucked up idiot.
