A server is a computer running networking software that allows you to connect your computer with other computers and servers. There are at least four servers between your laptop and DC: your home network server; your internet service provider's server; the internet itself; and DC's server. Data you type and send to DC is transmitted via these servers.

There's much more to it, of course - specialized servers for different purposes, etc. Does this answer your question?

When I am at a loss for a sandwich, it is either egg or chicken salad. Cold cuts have lost their charm for the time being. Sometimes, if I have a tomato on hand, I will ring it out and add it also.

DH did some things and now I'm on the PC again, but I no longer have Firefox for some reason. I don't know what he did or what the problem was. Yesterday, when I made my stuffed cabbage rolls I tried to post pictures of them and kept getting an error message about the server so I just gave up. Then today when I tried to get online I couldn't and kept getting a similar error message.

It wasn't the waitstaff, PF. I had to serve the cabbage rolls myself. And they were delicious!

I think we need a couple guys in bow-ties to bring us our dessert.

Yes you did, to a point. I still don't understand why my PC wasn't working, but now that it's working again, that's all I care about. I reinstalled Firefox and I'm back in business!

Your question was "What is a server?" "What's wrong with my PC?" is different That could be many, many things.
