      Interesting lesson Alex on Internet vocabulary.

      It is a fact that nowadays it is practically a must to be familiar with these terminology.

      Understanding these terms will help us to surf the net with ease, no doubt about it.

      Alex, your lesson also showed us that the English language is constantly changing i.e coining or adopting new words; unlike Spanish that is reluctant to change.

      Thanks a million for this wonderful lesson!

      By for now.

Online: Connected to or stored on the internet.

Modem: A device that allows computer to receive and send information through lines of communication, such as telephone lines. For example, dial-up internet access uses a modem and a telephone line to connect to the internet.
Dial-up access is usually slower than high-speed access, or broadband, like a cable modem or DSL. DSL is a different way of using phone lines to connect to the internet, and a cable modem uses cable television lines for internet access.

Link: A connection. When talking about computers, a link is a connection between one document or website and another document or website. If you click on a link online, you will be taken to the document or website referred to
in the link.

Blog: This is a journal you make and keep online. It can be open to the public to read, or you can allow only certain people to see it. This word is short for web log.

Chat room: An internet location where you can have almost instant communication through typed messages with other users whom you might not know.

To IM: To instant message. To send and receive brief messages from someone or more than one person almost instantly in a conversation-like way over the internet.

Discussion board or forum: A place where you write questions or thoughts, and other users read them and respond.

To post: To make something available for the public to read. Specifically, as related to the internet, it means to put information or questions on a discussion board, forum, blog, etc., for others to read.

To pop up: To appear on the screen. A pop-up usually refers to a new browser window opened automatically by a website or program. On the internet, pop-ups are often advertisements that appear as new windows. There are many programs available that “block” these pop-ups.

Spam: Emails you did not ask for that advertise or promote something. Also known as junk mail.

(Internet) browser: A program designed to help you look at information on the internet. The action of looking through different webpages is called surfing the internet or browsing.

It was a very practical lesson. Thanks.
And by the way, if I may,the difference between downloading and streaming a file (video as an example) is that when you stream a video the program used to watch it treats the information at the moment you play the video and then puts it on a temporary folder, on the trash or erases it. When downloading, the file (video as an example) goes to a default download folder or to a folder of your choice and then you can watch it later and of course offline.(disconnected of internet).

Hi Alex, you are my favorit nerd!!! Great lesson as usual! But I have a complaint to make: The quiz has words that you didn’t teach us, so I got only 9/10… :(There are words like browser, click, buffering… and expressions like “taking forever”) By the way, what does “taking forever” mean? Is it the same as “taking a long time?
