You want operational content? You got it!

On the Twelth Day of Christmas
My network gave to me:
Twelve kiddies scripting
Eleven users spamming
Ten trojans listening
Nine routers crashing
Eight worms still probing
Seven servers DOSing
Six switches freezing
Five flapping routes
Four calling NOCs
Three bad hubs
Two fiber cuts
And a virus on my brand new XP

Enjoy your holiday, whatever it is.

Good one, Scott!

Seriously.. I traded babysitting the NOC for Christmas for
some prime vacation time this summer and other considerations.
So far it's been fairly quiet, except for an incredible
amount of spam traffic attempts. Merry Christmas Ya'll!
