Most people don't pay much attention to fungi, which include things like mushrooms, molds, yeasts, and mildews. Here at Cornell we think they're pretty fascinating. In fact, even the most disgusting foot diseases and moldy strawberries are dear to our hearts. We'd like to talk to you about fungi, so that like us, you too can tell gross stories at the dinner table. Afterwards, maybe you'll notice some things you would have overlooked before, and we think this could be good for the planet.

SOCKS5代理和http代理有什么区别?不同?_百度知道:2021-7-28 · 那SOCKS代理和HTTP代理的不同 : 层面 2113 上: 从上文我们知 5261 道SOCKS 工作 在会话层上,而 4102 HTTP工作在应 用层 上。 速度上 1653 : Socks代理只是简 单地 传递数据包,而不必关心是何种应用协议(比如FTP、HTTP和NNTP请求),所以Socks代理服务器比应用层代理服务器要快得多。
