TCP/IP on toast

Inevitable...

TCP/IP packets are routed to a toast printer and are broken down into sections capable of being clearly represented on a piece of bread. For efficiency, both sides of the bread are used for data.

The data may be presented as a barcode or QR code using light and dark areas.

The toast is ejected from the printer and assembled into packets which are then transmitted to the receiver via WalkNet. On arrival the packets are disassembled and they are then scanned by a pair of cameras optimised for extracting digital data from toast.

The TCP/IP message is reconstructed at the recipient, and the toast is eaten.

       Would it not take most of a loaf merely to get through the header?

       // most of a loaf merely to get through the header? //   

       "Hi, I missed breakfast this morning, can you send me a long email ?"   

       // significant packet loss nearer the origin, //   

       That can be avoided by using SMTP (Secure Melamine Toast Plate)   

       // there is the possibility of a jam. //   

       Nothing in life is without risk.

       are there opportunities to do holographic data storage, bread has 3d bubbles, the diameter of which could represent numbers, cofocalized 3d lasers could print at the volume of the computationally enhanced bread product.   

       aside from that my duty to always be accurate suggests that deeply coded foams could have some application, if each void diameter is considered a lengthy number like .32164237439846.... millimeters diameter the ultra lengthy numeral laser measured could represent data. the raio orf different voids could then create even lengthier data numbers which could possibly code terabytes. ...or larger amounts...

       Bagel's algorithm will ensure that your slices are toasted in order.

       TCP/IP? Why not use Binary User-Terminated Transmission Exchange Reference? Or even the Entity - Graph Generation Standard?

       That would probably be better done at the baking stage, and I would suggest using confocal masers.
