The question 'where are you?' Have me the option of finding my one location. I didn't past that, just to avoid making the interview more complex that it needed to be.

Had they asked for the available options, I would have had to think through the others. Would I get extra points for considering 2-d options?

Professional Engineers do indeed have a code of ethics. Ask the NSPE.

But there are few network engineers that qualify as Professional Engineers. A P.E. is licensed and/or registered, and mostly a graduate of an engineering school.

Cisco certifications are demanding, but I doubt they qualify anyone as a P.E.

My keychain (Nite Ize S-biner) gets either one set of car keys or the other, most of the time. Rarely both. Also on it are the house keys, mailbox key, and two loyalty tags, for the supermarket and the auto parts store.

Most always with me:

Front pocket wallet with the minimum cards.
Leatherman Micra that needs to be sharpened.
Motorola Elite Flip headset.

My phone, the HTC One M8, is always with me.

Plantronics Backbeat Fit headset (fabulous).

And a pedometer while I choose a fitness gizmo.

Not much.

On my work bag are the office keys and hard token, and snapped on is the keychain and other car keys, just in case.

No watch. Never again.

If you're not brewing your coffee specifically to strip paint and refinish your concrete, you're wasting your time and coffee.

If your community isn't collecting your grounds to pave the local highways, you're not doing it right.

If you bother to stir your coffee and get the spoon back, you're not trying hard enough.

If adding sugar doesn't cause a violent reaction requiring evacuation, you're not doing it right.

Coffee is intended to be a test of endurance and strength. C'mon, man...

Air pollution is really making us pay through the nose.
