Network Engineers' Humor - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

If you are at all interested in how small businesses run, get started, succeed, fail, etc., then reading through Inc. magazine is definitely recommended. A fellow by the name of Joel Spolsky writes a monthly colum titled, How Hard Could It Be? Joel is the co-founder and CEO of Fog Creek Software. His wit and humor are strewn throughout his columns, which makes them the first thing I read every month.

In the August 2008 edition, this passage is particularly funny (the column is about the inefficiency of regimented corporate policies - Starbucks in this case):

A network engineer would say this was a situation of "same bandwidth, lower latency" and then probably launch into a story about how the post office, mailing millions of DVDs (and a few letters) around the world every day, has the highest bandwidth of any network on earth, with far greater capacity than the biggest fiber-optic backbone, but with high latency -- so you wouldn't want to use it for, say, telephony. And this would be extremely hilarious to the network engineer. That's the kind of joke they tell.

Enjoy.
