'16-'17 General Discussion for Lesson 1.12

Brook, I just got back from our first workshop since TeacherCon Utah. Everything went great, however, this question popped up that we couldn’t solve.

I am refering to the Internet Simulator. When you enter a room your are assigned a bubble with your name and a number after it. When you first go in you might be Rob3, but if you get kicked out, and come back in you are assigned your name again, but with a different number, i.e. Rob23. I was wondering if this is simulating something that a router does, like DHCP connections, or is this completely random. I feel that the maker of the internet simulator is trying to simulate something here. I can see why the IP changes but not the name. Why does the name change?
