Another good choice for a major international carrier with a pop in Accra
would be opentransit/France Telecom.

However, a Hyatt Regency hotel in Bellevue is about as far from grunge as
one can get. For those not familiar with Bellevue it is roughly similar to
Crystal City in Arlington, VA.

NANOG70 tee shirt mystery

2017-06-04 Thread Matthew Petach
So, I've been staring at the NANOG70 tee shirt for
a bit now:

https://flic.kr/p/VejX5y

and I have to admit, I'm a bit stymied.

Usually, the tee-shirts are somewhat referential
to the location or to a particular event; but this
one is leaving me scratching my head.

Is it perhaps a shot of the network engineering
"Ooops (I broke the network again)"  concert
tour?

Or is there some other cultural reference at
play that I'm not aware of?

Enquiring minds want to know!(tm).  :)

And the 4x100G. That's four times the capacity of the network I work for.
~100k subs.
