Blessed is I


… for I have an Internet connection at work that is so fast, so fast (and I can’t seem to be able to emphasize enough) it will blow your mind off. Some proof is in order:

ayaz@worklinux:$ ping http://www.google.com
PING google.navigation.opendns.com (208.67.217.231) 56(84) bytes of data.

Boasting average round-trip times of over three seconds and max round-trip times of nearly five seconds, boy oh boy, the Internet connection at work gallops like a Unicorn or what. Totally captivating.

On an otherwise completely unrelated note, isn’t it simply fascinating how people who know jack about networks pass off as highly skilled senior network engineers who happen to know the ins and outs of any goddamn network like they know to a questionable degree of accuracy how many hairs their beards are made up of? It sure is.

  1. I am trying hard to cheer myself up, but there is almost always something that ends up getting on my nerves every passing day. The frustration does sometimes become overwhelming. Thanks for the comment. :)
