DIP switch Dual-In-line Package This is the name for those little tiny plastic switchs that you need to change some times. Basically if you are being confronted with dealing on the DIP switch level you are probably in over your head. This is the time to have the technician on the phone talking you threw each and every step of the process. If you are capible of doing DIP switches by yourself then you don't need these definitions. If you had to lookup the name you need help before you start switching them.DIP|&|Dialup Internet Protocol

Dynamic Loaded Libraries This is a part of the program. Stuff on your computer is divided into stuff that is basically, programs, drivers, and data. The programs are things like PhotoShop, Netscape, & Quake. The drivers are those things you get from the manufactor for your soundcard, videocard, harddrive and other such stuff. Basically drivers are the translators your hardware manufactor creates to communicate with Windows. When these are messed-up your computer-life is messedDLP|&|Digital Light Processing

DNS Domain Name System This is a listing which tells your browser or email program what the IP address of or any other word address is. Your computer can not send information to or to any other such address. Your computer can only send and receive information from places with numbers for their names. The DNS is used to translate word-name addresses into number addresses.
