Addresses are too long to remember so you have to use and understand DNS.
From what I’ve seen lately network admins really don’t like DNS.
“Please add 192.0.2.10 to the monitoring system. The hostname is router_foo_bar.”
No FQDN, no DNS records, no nothing. And underscores in the name. So once again one has to rely on the poor mans
DNS (aka /etc/hosts).
When working as a freelancer you often have to deal with strange people. I already mentioned iOS vs IOS earlier.
Here are some examples:
“I’ll just send you an email about a very interesting project” – “Just” meaning phone call first then hitting send.
Or (two weeks ago): “We need someone for an IPv6 workshop in two weeks” – As I just had two days left and the customer was on the route between two other customers. I answered but got no reply. Then last week (different company offering the project, same text): “We need someone for an IPv6 workshop this week. Or next week!”
And another favorite: “Opportunité de mission pour un ingénieur checkpoint”. Whats wrong with that? I don’t speak French and I’m not working with Check Point firewalls.
I buy DVDs! I own a lot of them. A couple of hundred at least.
Please stop bothering me with anti piracy spots on the DVDs I bought. I makes me think too stop buying DVDs. And Blue Ray disks and other media. I won’t start to pirate your content, I just will stop consuming it.
