Subject:RE: Terminology: NIC on board ? From:"Marguerite Krupp" <mkrupp -at- cisco -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Fri, 13 Dec 2002 13:07:18 -0500
Both NIC [Network Interface Card} and RAID [Redundant Array of Inexpensive
Disks] are standard terminology in the computer industry. I wouldn't have
any problem using them for any audience other than those who are totally new
to the industry.
The part that bothers me more is the "on board." That could mean "inside" or
literally on a circuit board or something else.
