Started my new job Monday last week and am loving every minute of it so far.
Private Sector is so much different to Public/Voluntary Sector I have done for the last 15+ years.
For example; They tend to actually have a clue what they are meant to be doing!

I was really scared leaving my Youth Work job for this role in Business Analysis, but I guess some skills are transferable?

Not sure whether to go to my old workplace Xmas party or my new workplace Xmas party. Or neither.

Contacting Virgin Media to report a fault with my Media Hub router thing (failed ethernet port), fully expecting to spend the next 2 hours explaining to a call-centre cretin that I'd already swapped cables and restarted it, and that putting it into modem mode wouldn't make a f*cking difference etc.

Hung up the phone within 3 minutes of being put through, with a new appliance being delivered on wednesday.

Virgin are arseholes and if I ever see Richard Branson in the street I'm likely to either launch a flying headbutt at him, or mutter something rude to myself just out of his earshot.

Because they're more than just "routers", they work across layers 1 to 3 of the OSI model (physical, data link, and network layer), and routing takes place at layer 3. I think.

This stuff all makes far more sense at a commercial scale. Anyway, networking's boring b*llocks, for boring people.

My BB router / hub was playing up, so built up courage to speak to someone in India and get ready to say sorry, what was that, sorry, what was that, sorry, what was that but was put through to this Geordie lad instead.

He was brilliant!! Had a laugh about the football, cost of beer down here, he got 30 notes off my monthly bill and sent me the very latest hub/router FOC, he said all my calls now will be directed to UK based operators as well. Best ever call to BT, ever :D

I remember we held interviews for second-line support and not one person could explain the Seven Layer OSI Model to a standard that was coherent. Sounds shocking as this really is essential for troubleshooting network problems.

It's definitley boring but I worked with a network team once who were the biggest bunch of coke-snorting alkys I'd come across in the world of IT (and that's saying something). Good at their jobs but absolute mentalists.

TBH, 1-4's where the action's at.

I usually ask an OSI question when I'm interviewing people, and rarely get a coherent answer. I usually start with the annoyingly open-ended "can you explain tcp/ip?" and letting them ramble on before asking a few specifics. Someone I recently spoke to for a Senior Engineer role told me he "hadn't done any tcp/ip for about 10 years".
