  • Note: This book is reprinted several times per year, and the publisher is pretty good about correcting errors. This means that, with luck, your copy will already have fixed a lot of these mistakes.
  • Page 376: A T1 line is 1.544 million bps, not 1.44.


  • Check back here often for more, probably more interesting, updates.
