My Master has done an excellent job of portraying his thinking on how and what protocols are for His house. I would like to relate how these protocols affect me.
This definition of a protocols was taken from a tech website but I somehow feel that it applies, the bolded portions are my words):
the type of error checking to be used (I send to Master everyday a daily email detailing certain items that I should have done)
Protocols are an agreed-upon format
for transmitting data (instructions, rules, behaviors)
between two devices (Master to slave).
The protocol determines the following:
data compression (storing data in a format that requires less space than usual) method, if any (self explanatory, Master does not make his protocols so extensive that the meaning gets lost)
how the sending device will indicate that it has finished sending a message (My Master usually asks if I have any questions or if I need any clarification on the protocol(s) introduced)
how the receiving device will indicate that it has received a message (my affirmation of “yes Master”)
This is how I perceive my Master’s protocols. They are our special way to communicate with each other. He transfers to me his way for me to programmed to his specifications. I have protocols for when I am at his home, my home and in public (vanilla and M/s setting).
