Very good points for leading teams of all types. Do you want people to respect you? Respect them first and be aware of what behaviours can trigger some people.

Visual Subnet Calculator

2019/01/29

I’m a sysadmin/consultant by trade. I cut my teeth on IPv4 addressing way back in the NT4 days when most addressing was still class based.

I never really got the hang of CIDR addressing but I understood the rationale and concepts of it. I was never very good at finding a good approach to subnetting and CIDR mask determination though. Usually there was a network person’s brain handy to have a conversation with and that got me by.

Then along came public Cloud and the rules for CIDR address allocation and subnetting changed again. I knew that the old approach to subnet determination wasn’t really good for the public Clouds and all the docs from the vendors wanted you to assign a /16 to every VPC/vNet you created. This always felt wasteful and like overkill to me.

I decided to hunt around for something that could help me and found this tool. Visual Subnet Calculator


Faith in Humanity has received an additional skill point

I wanted to offer a big thank you to someone who will never read this.

We had that unfortunate event last week where someone clipped the drivers side mirror on our car. The mirror assembly was snapped right off and the glass shattered.

Fortunately, the person who did this was a professional driver who ensured that the mirror housing was recovered and placed on the car and also left an apologetic note with their contact details.

My first thought was of course that the contact details left are probably not real. We’ve had this problem before where someone damaged our car, left a note with their number but somehow managed to leave one digit off their number. Yay.

I called the number on the note and spoke to Mohammed. He was very apologetic and immediately offered to pay to have it repaired without involving insurance. I got some quotes for the repair, sent them to him, he transferred the money to us and we got the mirror fixed.

Neat, simple and quick.

I wanted to put a huge thank you out there to Mohammed for this ownership of the accident and the prompt fixing of it.
