So telling someone to suck it up is a valid response now.

If I told women to suck it up that they didn't get a job they were qualified for people would jump down my thought to call me a misogynist. Grow up you aren't special and you should be judged based upon your ability to perform, not what sex or skin color you are.

The "system" has been discriminating against women for a long, long time. So now people are doing something about it and assholes like you get in the way and play the victim.

Well fuck you, and fuck your attitude.

The network is part of the system.

SAs had better understand networking, I don't expect/demand Cisco certs, but basic understanding of networking is a requirement of the job.

I deal with systems administrators of large corporations on a daily basis, there are lots of really excellent administrators who really know their stuff and frequently teach me something when we interact.

However, and unfortunately, there is also a significant group who don't know TCP from UDP (etc.). This is the group this book is for.

As someone who read the first book when it came out 19 years ago, (and most of the subsequent ones... I eventually gave up) I have trouble sitting through more than a single episode.

However, I'm told that the problem I have with the books declining quality was significantly less of an issue with the series.

.. they'r.e not becoming acidic, they're becoming less alkaline and are slowly heading towards neutral.

Perhaps they've changed things in the 20+ years since I took my last chemistry class, but "becoming less alkaline" is pretty much the definition of "becoming more acidic".

Never say you know a man until you have divided an inheritance with him.
