An Ironic Final Exam

It was finals week of fall term and the first final I was given was CIS 151. It started strong, and we were just minding our business....

Some time in to the exam, a bunch of us started getting server connection errors. Well how do we finish the final exam now?

I sent this tweet to Cisco (by the way follow me on Twitter):

> taking networking final exam
> server goes down

But a few of us, myself included, started doing what any systems administrator would do: troubleshoot it. We started pinging the server, checking connections, anything that we could do to see what was wrong.

In the end the final exam didn't count, but the final exam we gave ourselves was cooler anyway.
