RFC 1925 - The Twelve Networking Truths - a must read

This document is a must read for any serious network admin and i do dare to say also for a DBA.

.Net developers are welcome to read it since it is usefull.

 

A few excerpts:

(1) It Has To Work.

(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it  

      could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead.

(4) Some things in life can never be fully appreciated nor understood unless experienced firsthand. Some things in networking can never be fully

      understood by someone who neither builds commercial networking equipment nor runs an operational network.

(5) It is always possible to aglutenate multiple separate problems into a single complex interdependent solution. In most cases this is a bad idea.

(10) One size never fits all.

(12) In protocol design, perfection has been reached not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

 

Full document can be found here.

# The Twelve Networking Truths - A little more specifics ?

Hi Mladen,

ON my IE 6 browser, this feedback form ( left side ) is not completely visible.
Did you know that ? or is it my Browser ?

Also, this information is too abstract for me ( .NET Developer ).
So, if there is some Network Bandwith design issues that you can share, I would appreciate it. (existing articles ).

Peace, LA Guy ( LA, Ca )

Hmm... looks ok on my IE6...

it's probably some CSS rendering bug in IE6... weird
try IE7 :)

now i don't know if you're kidding me but this article is a humorous one.
there are some general truths in there (like the one with flying pigs)
but it's not really s proper RFC if you ask me :)
well i've never been much into networks (ping and netstat are the "advanced tools" i use)
so google is your best friend.

Well i've tried a bunch of things like changing the skin, removing all adsense, checking xhtml formatting etc...

It seems that subtext has somekind of a CSS-rendering problem
with every availabe skin...
The ones i like are AnotherEon001 and the KeyWest.

IE7 and Firefox display AnotherEon001 ok, IE6 doesn't.
IE6 and Firefox display KeyWest ok, IE7 doesn't.

so i'm thinking about going back to keywest since more people have IE6 and Firefox.
but that won't happen so fast...
but i'll talk to graz first to see about some updates for subtext.
thanx for tellimg me about this.

That's weird that you see rendering problems on the other skins because I don't. I only see the issues on your blog.

I see error on both but never on the same skin...

IE6.

On your new blog post though, it is formatted fine.

I can try IE7 when I get home.

this page does not come up correctly for me in IE6. Actually the majority of your blog does not come out right. Try stripping out any carriage returns from some of your posts or changing the skin of your blog ?
