I will be gradually assembling a collection of useful material that will be presented in PDF (Adobe Reader) form so it is easier to print out or download to your computer or mobile device as “on-hand” reference material. Some material like reference sheets may be intended to be printed out for you to fill in by hand so you can file it away easily with your papers.
This information will be free to download and print but if it is to be used in other publications, it should be attributed to HomeNetworking01.info .
