Solve the following rebus puzzle (which should be fairly easy for the users of this site):

I was rather expecting the answer to have something to do with the fact that the hint is in a code block as well as a quote block, since you said easy for users of this site. – DasBeasto Mar 24 at 13:27

(Two) Peas in a pod.

Reason:

P&P = P's
Capsule = Pod

I'd rather see the rebus as cap2psule, but good job and fast response. I was trying to think of the ampersand. – goodguy5 Mar 24 at 12:07

Just a thought: I think the word being not aligned to left (or formattin overall) is another clue. Given that asker's rep, (s)he would know how to format it if it wasn't related. – Lafexlos Mar 24 at 12:14
    
@goodguy5 Or even capppsule. – shoover Mar 24 at 20:43

Note: This is certainly not the answer, I just spent too long thinking about it so I felt like posting it

It bothered me that the hint was nested in a code block as well as a quote block but it was irrelevant to the answer, so I integrated it into mine.

Answer:

Client Side TCP Three-Way Handshake Initiation

Background:

The TCP Three-Way handshake is the way a client opens a connection with a server in the internet world. The client sends a SYN packet, the server acknowledges with an ACK, then the client sends a SYN-ACK, at which point the connection is complete.

Reasoning:

P&P - The two packets the client will send out during this handshake, SYN and SYN-ACK
capP&Psule - The packets are in the word capsule - in order to send packets they must be encapsulted (in=en/capsule=capsulated)
Quote Block - This process is sometimes called a conversation between the client and the server, the quote block denotes that this is what the client is saying in the conversation.
Code block - The encapsulated packets are what the client is saying, the client is a computer, computers communicate in code. Hence, what is in the quote block must be put in a code block.
