You Down With UDP?

James was singing to the melody of O.P.P by naughty by nature, “You down with UDP?” To which I didn’t answer, because UDP is connectionless. He then sang “You down with TCP?” and I answered “Yeah you know me.” This was a pretty lame joke. So to top that I asked “Does this make all UDP questions rhetorical?”

I love a good lame joke :P

    A UDP packet walks into a bar, no one acknowledges him.

    A TCP packet walks into a bar twice because no one acknowledged him the first time.

    An ICMP packet walks into a bar, says “Hello!” to the bartender, who then in turn runs out to tell the ICMP packet’s wife.

    A BGP peer walks into a bar, exchanges contact details with every one, then leaves and… yeah I’ve probably gone over my quota for terrible jokes today.

    You have indeed. I bow to your terrible joke generation abilities…and will now tarpit you.

    Well, I didn’t want to just flood you with invalid comments now did I :-D

    Unrelated but just as important side-note: Routerboard SFP device to be announced! *excited*

    Andrew,

    Hell, I’m just waiting for MikroTik to fix WinBox so it remembers my settings every time I restart it. That would be nice. I’ve got a lot of complaints about WinBox… But sorry, no jokes. How about PIM-Dense or Bi-Directional PIM? Openvpn that supports udp?
    By the way Greg, I’ve got OSPF and PIM-SM working over a IPIP/IPSec tunnel thanks to a little nudge from you a while back, if you can remember that far.. :-) :-) I’m slow but sure..
    Sounds really simple for great router guru’s like you (that was a compliment), but a struggle for me doing it part time.. You should have heard the “Woo-Hoo”… :-) :-)

    I love me some winbox…I have no knowledge of what you speak…hehe

    PIM-Dense would make Multicast soooo much easier. Less efficient, yes, but easier ;)

    Openvpn support is being dropped.

    Congrats on the OSPF/IPIP/IPSec/PIM…hehehe…that’s a frickin mouthful!

    OpenVPN support is seriously being dropped?

    I’ve heard it several times, but I can’t find any written documentation where they are coming right out and saying it.

    Awesome, good geeky joke. I like it.

    The best thing about UDP jokes is i don’t care if you get it or not.
