    I'm sure some of your users have called you various genital names.

    OK, you can be the gonad of an ettin, in which each ball is split into two balls.

    That's precisely what had me chuckling. I've long wanted to put in IPv6 here just to fuck with the "we hate DNS, memorise all the IPs" crowd.

    it's a pity they decided to use hexidecimal to represent each value instead of symbols with 36 possible values.. because then you could have just used the entire alphabet, and like - done away with DNS man.

    IPs are great for when you're having DNS issues you can't fix

    On another note: Will the next iteration of IP include emojis?

    The established thinking here is that "DNS is unreliable" and "always fails" so they just do away with it for a lot of their deployments. Same goes for authentication.

    We had a new bunch of stuff pop up here without my knowledge recently. There was some catastrophic failure one morning, the person who set it up was on leave, and there's 3 blokes running around taking photos of IP addresses in Mac network config GUIs to then come and show me in person and ask me to fix things. No DNS, no centralised authentication, weird mish-mash of firewall allow and block rules in differing priorities of allow/block, everything was fucked.

    It's like the last 7 years I was here was lost in literally a week of me being too busy to advise on a new setup, and nobody's grown or learned anything. In the absence of professional advice, they reverted to high-school-student levels of workgroup setup.

    I raged for about 5 minutes, then gave up. I got a phone call back from a very excited recruiter, so I'm just trying to embrace some Zen for a moment and hope for better things (read: something new that's equally as shit, but I need a change).

    Your "taking the piss" is my "daily grind". And I'm burned out.

    I don't understand what I'm looking at, can you you please use a computer analogy to explain it.
