Return to basics.

So, I'm starting a graduate program. It's a bit nerve-wracking since my college career was a bit ... sporadic. But the first class I'm taking is "Data Communications."

I do not expect the bulk of the subject matter to be particularly challenging. :) I'm mostly going for this as a first class to ease myself back into the routine of actually doing school work and all of that.

However, I think it will be interesting to go back to the very basic principles. It doesn't look like this will be a class where they hand me a copy of the Comer book and say "Here is some hex. Decode the packet," but still, it should be interesting to go back to looking slowly at things my brain normally glosses over and take a look at Internet connectivity with a bit of beginner's mind.
