I have found a number of points in your page:
1) You don't define FTP (make clear the difference with shared disks)
and SNMP. SNMP (simple netwwork management protocol) allows the state
of every box in the network being viewed from a supervising machine
like boxes down or unreachable, overloadede boxes, nearly full disks
and so on as provided by a machine definition called a MIB.
2) Development raoups are useless for non-programmers but do not assume
home users <=> home users
I did it I used a math sysmbol. :-)
