The ‘Geek’ T-shirt was one of a series of adverts that have been turning up unsolicited recently in my Facebook feed.

For anyone still struggling to understand the “Address” one:

127.0.0.1 - is the conventional ‘loop-back’ address used to reference your own computer on a LAN (Local Area Network).

19:08:AF:51:11:08 - is a typical MAC (Media Access Control) 48 bit ‘physical address’ string (usually shown as six colon separated pairs of hexadecimal digits) which is burned into a chip somewhere on every network device you own - It’s also known as an Ethernet address - It provides a unique identifier so that your network can tell the difference between one computer/printer/switch/router and another

The 151.194.25.39 dotted quad is a typical WAN (wide area network) address. The T-Shirt manufacturers missed a trick by not picking a dotted quad that pointed to their product web page

I must be a Geek also.. as I worked with ASCII and displays (fonts) and tables a lot.. so yes, I could read it. Does that make me a nerd too?

Best wishes,
Dave :^)

Well, of course! Is that supposed to be a bad thing?
