    A few questions about the mechanics of posting comments; I couldn’t find any mention of this:
    — Do cookies have to be enabled? (I usually disable cookies.)
    — If I post, should the comment be immediately visible? Or not until it goes through moderation?

      I don’t believe cookies need to be enabled to comment. The site will not remember your details without them, so you will need to re-enter them (as you undoubtedly anticipate).

      Some comments go right through, some are held for moderation, depending on keywords and such. Anyone commenting from an email address that hasn’t commented before will be moderated, and known email addresses changing IP are sometimes moderated too.

      You’ll get a warning if your comment was held for moderation in the usual fashion but not if it ended up in the spam trap. We do rescue stuff from the spam trap fairly promptly though.

    oh, fuckin cisco. STAY CLASSY, CISCO.

    So, no shit, there I was, at a “cisco Networkers” conference (I’m not sure if they still call it that) back in 2000. I was pleased to see a conference panel on encouraging women in the networking field, because, hey, awesome. And then, THE VERY SAME DAY, I go to the social event, where part of the event-specific decor at the venue is a bunch of “living statues”. Every one of them a chick. I mean, it’s Las Vegas. You expect conventionally attractive flesh on display. But they couldn’t throw a single bone to diversity and have even one sexy guy on display?

    I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY WOMEN MIGHT NOT WANT TO STAY IN THE FIELD! IF ONLY SOMEONE COULD MAKE SENSE OF THIS STRANGE BEHAVIOR!

    I was good, though. I didn’t even set anyone on fire or nuthin.
