 SOEFNTierArch.htm
The term N-Tier Architecture describes a category of hardware and software configuration, and does not imply a particular source code design of software programs.
While N-Tier Architectures did, for the most part, result from the introduction of web technologies such as HTTP, N-Tier architectures are regularly employed in both Web (browser-based) as well as traditional Windows-style applications, where the UI screens are not browser-based.
To this extent, N-Tier Architecture evolved from what is known as the Client-Server Architecture, which was the predominant design for software systems until the early 1990's, when HTTP-based web technologies emerged and came into widespread use.

 Talk:North American Man/Boy Love Association - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I was content with NAMBLA being classified in the "Gay Organizations" subcategory only so long as that category was not a clear attempt by political-minded gays to try to shove NAMBLA out of the first tier of organizations.
