Please Whitelist This Site?
I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)
If you like The TCP/IP Guide, please consider the download version. It's priced very economically and you can read all of it in a convenient format without ads.
If you want to use this site for free, I'd be grateful if you could add the site to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on tcpipguide.com". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||tcpipguide.com^$document". Then just click OK.
Thanks for your understanding!
Sincerely, Charles Kozierok

I dedicated this Guide to my wife
and children to reflect the important role they have played in life
in general terms, and in accomplishing this Guide in particular. However,
there are many others who also contributed to the completion of this
document, and Id like to take a moment to acknowledge them.
I want to thank my original
family, my father Leon, and sisters Cari and Cindy, for being supportive
and lending a helpful ear about various issues during the time that
Ive engaged in this project. Thanks also to my adoptive
family, Eli, Marge, Larry and Steven. And I definitely want to thank
the small group of close friends who have helped with ideas, advice
and much needed laughs, especially Morley, Jeff, James and Jon, all
of whom had to listen to far more of my blathering about this project
over the last few years than any human being should have to tolerate.
I would also like to specifically
acknowledge the following individuals and organizations for their assistance:
Systems Incorporated, for providing
this relatively unknown author with two important pieces of software
that I used in creating this Guide. First, Adobe
Framemaker, one of the best desktop
publishing programs around, which was used to format and publish this
document. Second, Adobe
Photoshop, the industry standard program
for photo and graphics editing, which was used for some of the graphics
in this Guide, and will play a more central role in subsequent Guides
containing more photographs.
for the excellent SmartDraw diagramming software that was used to create
most of the over 300 illustrations that appear in this Guide.
- Harald Heim of The
Plugin Site, for graciously providing
me with two excellent Photoshop plugins that any serious photographer
should consider: the FocalBlade
sharpening tool and ColorWasher
Systems, for their superb MIf2Go FrameMaker/HTML
export filter, without which the production of the TCP/IP Guide online
HTML version would have been much more difficult.
- Fernando Gont and Barry Margolin, for their excellent
technical review of The TCP/IP Guide, and their corrections and suggestions
for improvement to the document.
- Bill Pollock, president and publisher of No
Starch Press, for constantly expressing
his faith in my abilities as an author, for answering questions about
the business, for being a sounding board, and for agreeing to publish
The TCP/IP Guide in book form.
Houser, author and instructor, whose
generosity, positive attitude and enthusiasm for my writing helped boost
my confidence as I worked to complete this project.
- All the regulars at The
PC Guide Discussion Forums, for creating
a fun community, helping keep the site active, and agreeing to review
and provide opinions on my writing. Thanks especially to Paleo Pete
and mjc for doing such a great job of moderating the forums.
- Christine Hylands of Junefire
DTP, for assistance with creating
certain graphics in this Guide, as well as designing its Web site (on
- Everyone who has supported The PC Guide, financially
and otherwise, which made it possible for me to spend time on this project.
Ive probably missed a few people
who should be on this list; I hope all who are deserving of my appreciation
will forgive their omission and accept my thanks.
