Laugh of day

2012-03-20 02:53:55.688155+00 by meuon 3 comments

Today: A Director of IT and his consultant attempted to question my understanding of IP addresses, DNS and firewalls.... So I pulled up rdesktop on his primary domain controller, from remote, and logged in as administrator. In front of them both, and they still did not get it. (yes, they use plain text email protocals internally)

The true measure of a man is what he does, when he knows what he does is truly unknowable.

Damn personal ethics, someday there just might be enough cash on the table. It's not that I'm honest, I'm just not cheap.

If only I could post todays email from the conslutant where he explains how I should change my default router to not use the ISA firewall ip address.. he gives me step by step "route add default..." commands and got them wrong.

Next time I see public net access AND internal access on the same switch (especially when not VLAN'd) with only routing blocking anything..

The ability to regurgitate (often erroneous) information is generally prized far more highly than practical knowledge gained from actual experience.

You're obviously a hacker, and they should call the police on you for breaking and entering their system. *rolls eyes*
