comment How do you phonetically pronounce all of the German note names?
As far as I know, in Germany at least, C♭ is pronounced [ʦɛs] (not [ʦes]) and C♯ is pronounced [ʦɪs] (not [ʦis]), etc.

comment “The easiest way …”
Die einfachste Art und Weise is also an alternative, AFAIK. Art und Weise is used as if it were a single word.

comment Adjektiv für Punkt-zu-Punkt-Operationen
Um den richtigen Ausdruck zu finden müsste man auch wissen, ob bei Punkt-zu-Mehrpunkt-Operationen alle möglichen Empfänger erreicht werden oder nicht. Auf Englisch sagt man im ersten Fall broadcast, im zweiten multicast.
