Tall ships (porthole)

(no subject)

Things that make sysadmins go "WTFOMGLOLBBQ???!?!!": network activity lights on solid (or, in this case, constantly flashing).

Pull up task manager, see that incoming and outgoing traffic is equal at about 36kB/s. Curious. Fire up etheral, set it going, and see a ridiculous rate of NTP packets between this computer (acting as server)... and the router (acting as client). WTF?

I thought the brain-dead embedded NTP clients got given some brains a few years back, or at least enough sense to not try to flood a NTP server.
