Of clueless sysAdmins - some of us hunger for sysAdmin jobs, others have it thrust upon them.

On a related note, it also really helps if there's actually some worthwhile documentation on how to configure and run said hardware that requires configuration files being spoken in arcane runes - backwards....through a RS-232 cable via a half functioning laptop (kept around just in case of such things) whilst offering small blood sacrifices to your deity of choice...

There's a reason I never touch networking gear........
