First let me thank the author for introducing me to howstuffworks.com. What a useful site. It has videos to show how stuff works. The DSL tutorial was very simply written, easy to understand, and can be used in a classroom for beginning computer classes as well as by the general public. The only downside was the advertisements placed in the margins on the page. But we understand that advertisements on a website are a necessary evil. The explanation was done precisely and took up one page.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to navigate the page. Links worked. Search engine powered by google which makes it reliable.

While viewing the site I found that it provides informative information with
visual aid. Also giving advatagtes and disadvantages on the topic. Although this
site is How DSL Works the author could have given a brief history on DSL.

Technical Remarks:

I found the site to be user friendly and well put togehter.
