damn its ironic...  
so today at work, our entire network went down... but the funnier part is, our phone system went down with it cause the phone system is a VoIP system, and hence is tied to the data network... so not only could we not get our email and such but we couldnt call anyone.. on top of which, we are in such a remote location that many cell phones dont work... so for about 2 - 3 hours nothing got down since NOBODY could communicate

moral of the story: dont fucking tie your phone system onto the data network when the data network's uptime is worse than the normal phone network...

second moral for Cisco: get the quality of the network uptime up to match that of POTS before you walk into the telco business..

and last moral to Cisco: dont fucking place one of your main campuses in such a remote location that frickin cell phone access is patchy at best.

I wish my phones and computers would go down :( Altough it is annoying at the same time. I heard something on the radio last night..I guess Cisco is buying back tons of their own stock?

actually Cisco started buying back back when they were laying off people about 3 years ago... its just a continuation of it, since they had to stage a 5 billion (i think its billion) share buy back (i think its over a 5 year period) ... no way can you buy it all at once without damaging the market...

oh that is so funny, and something I'm just waiting for it to happen at my company. So Cisco had a network outage, heh.
