    Default You might be a Network person if

    Credit goes to this Blog. I enjoyed it and thought others might as well.


    You might be a Network guy if:

    you know more ip addresses than phone numbers

    You regularly mock TV shows for using technology that isn't part of the feature set available on the devices they have

    You correct people who mix up Megabytes and Megabits

    You waited eagerly for wireless N to be approved officially.

    You can explain everything in your life using 7 layers

    You tell people not to use TKIP because of it's security flaw

    You think people should be able to do without DNS for a day, just use IP addresses...

    You follow your wife around shopping retail stores and spend your time skimming the ceilings for their APs and mapping out a heat map of the store in your head

    you know what TCP/IP stands for, not to mention DNS, HTTP, SNMP, BGP, OSPF, WPA, and DHCP - Sometimes you wonder if you know more acronyms than words

    You've known what IPv6 was for years

    cmd, telnet, and ssh are useful everyday tools, not just black boxes

    Linus Torvalds comes up in everyday conversation

    You know jokes about DHCP and LSAs

    You cringe when you have to use a Gui to configure a switch or router

    Your Amazon wish list consists of routers and ASA firewalls

    Dealing with Tier 1 tech support makes you pull your hair out.

    You have read the NSA's security best practices

    The routing protocol in your house changes daily depending on what you have been reading

    You know what a nibble is

    You know what 1000 Terabytes is called

    You can intelligently discuss how Egypt shut off their Internet to the country

    Yup, another one should have been you try to use tab or question marks to finish your sentence. That actually happened when I started to type this reply.

    Sadly enough I was looking at a paper map a few months ago and tried zoom on it by spreading my finger and thumb apart...I think I need to put the iPhone down for a while.

    only these apply to me on occasion:

    you know more ip addresses than phone numbers

    You regularly mock TV shows for using technology that isn't part of the feature set available on the devices they have

    You correct people who mix up Megabytes and Megabits

    You think people should be able to do without DNS for a day, just use IP addresses...

    You know what a nibble is

    You know what 1000 Terabytes is called

    You can intelligently discuss how Egypt shut off their Internet to the country

    and the one I added about finishing a sentence using the tab key or question mark

    Add a few more:

    You know what a gibibyte is

    When you tell an end user to copy something you immediately say "just highlight and CTRL+C" then quickly realize that instruction is much harder than right click/copy

    When you argue about what routing protocol to use at home

    You act as if you have an SLA for uptime at home

    You remote into family member's computers to troubleshoot your internet facing devices at work

    You complain about how the way most service men install any piece of copper in a house

    No, I find my sister-in-law using LOL, OMG, and such in her daily gossip. Just plain annoying.

    I do regularly truncate words in emails, as well as command prompt, that just sucks. Also find myself hitting the TAB and ? on a regular basis. My other half thinks I have tourettes.

    I was at Home Depot once and saw their MDF mounted about 20 feet off the floor and could tell what switch model was in it because someone left the door open and a ladder under it and I immediately thought what a security risk that was. Network and security minded.
