It looks like it's supposed to be the definition in this case of the two
networks he's dealing with personally. It could also be defined as a
simple reading comprehension test.

If anyone on the list lives in a property zoned residential and has in
excess of nine hundred ninety nine computers networked and operating,

My home network is down to two systems, a router, and a modem. My roommate
got pissy at the increase in the electric bill from a fan and a single
