I found this slide during some research. It was so “awesome” that I though it should be framed as a piece of bad art just to prove that there is an MPLS Standard or technology for every occasion. Which there should not be and this proves that most of the MPLS standards are just silly.

I had a bit of a problem in the data centre last week. I had left my USB console adapter for the MacBook at home.
I took a couple of turns around the data centre and found a DEC VT420 terminal in a cupboard or a discard pile. Put it onto the crash cart and scrounged around for some older cables.
The look on the data centre managers face as I configured his network with the 20 year old DEC terminal ?
I figured this would make a good poster. So I made a poster about the “Types of Network Crap” since I prefer not to use swear words on my blog.
