    I've always been of the opinion that there is something wrong with the name of this vendor. And I've finally found out the truth: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisco_(fish) . In this connection the saying "Fish goes rotten by the head" accepts unexpectedly direct meaning...

    I just wonder if it is Huawei that bred this kind of fish?.. And what kind of answer will follow?..

    Cisco isn't actually named after this fish, it's San FranCISCO, as far as i'm aware.

    "Microsoft" sounds like a bad porn star.

    Lotus is named after a genus of plant.

    Sounds interesting :)

    But actually what I mean is that names (i.e. Cisco Systems is officially said to be named after San Francisco) may sometimes refer to something quite different. :)

    I could ask the same of you, mate. Why come on here and talk smack about a highly reputable company that makes top-of-the-line networking devices, then mention a competitor in the same post? Please. Take your trolling elsewhere.

    Why it is still allowed to remain is a mystery.

    You can see this beautiful girl on the start page of the Cisco Systems site. Just have a look at her left eye. I'm wondering what happened to the eye and if this is a real black eye or just a blunder of a graphic designer.

    Anyway, this picture seems to be in a full accordance with the slogan: "...network is changing the way we live".
    Change your life - get a black eye! :blink

    It's called "trolling", and it's not tolerated on any of the forums I frequent. Hopefully, including this one.
