TOE

(TCP/IP Offload Engine) A network adapter that performs some or all of the TCP/IP processing on an Ethernet adapter. As Ethernet becomes common at 1 Gbps and beyond, offloading the processing from the CPU to the card allows the CPU to keep up with the high-speed data transmission. Processing for the entire TCP/IP protocol stack may be performed on the TOE or just the data transmission part, leaving the session establishment and error handling to the CPU. See TCP/IP.

When the ulnar styloid was fractured below its base, the distal ulna was approached either dorsally between the fifth (extensor digiti quinti) and sixth (extensor carpi ulnaris) extensor compartments, where access could be gained to the ulnar styloid and triangular fibrocartilage complex, or ulnarly between the extensor carpi ulnaris and flexor carpi ulnaris tendons.
The 4-5 portal is located 1.0 cm ulnar to the 3-4 portal and is bordered radially by the EDC and ulnarly by the extensor digiti quinti proprius (EDQP).
