Maybe the hiring practices need some examining! ;)

Thankfully the gov't dept I work for isn't quite like that. Different
country, too. Thankfully the ones in charge of the networks are much more
capable.

LAN techs...???? Hah I know government workers with a network engineer title
who can't spell PIX. Are you kidding me this guy doesn't have a clue about
anything. His solve all solution is "We have a firewall we don't need AV
software." "We don't need to patch our systems" It's an all Cisco shop and
he doesn't know squat about Cisco IOS. They outsource EVERYTHING. But this
guy makes 55k a year to make those phone calls. LOSER.

Really tweaks me.
