TCP connection state diagram

Today I was creating a spiced up version of the TCP connection state diagram from RFC 793 for some documentation. It turned out pretty nicely so I thought I should post it here. It’s a 1-to-1 conversion of the diagram in the RFC. The theme is based on the very nice GTD wallpapers. Drawn in Visio, source available here

Feel free to comment with feedback and corrections.
