The day the routers died…el día en el que el router murió.

¿Que ocurre cuando pones a un a un geek aficionado a la música delante de un auditorio? Pues algo como esto…

Letra:
a long long time ago

i can still rememberwhen my laptop could connect elsewhere
and i tell you all there was a day
the network card i threw away
had a purpose – and worked for you and me….
But 18 years completely wasted
with each address we’ve aggregated
the tables overflowing
the traffic just stopped flowing….
And now we’re bearing all the scars
and all my traceroutes showing stars…
the packets would travel faster in cars…the day….the routers died
Chorus (ALL!!!!!)
So bye bye, folks at RIPE 55
Be persuaded to upgrade it or your network will die
IPv6 just makes me let out a sigh
But I spose we’d better give it a try
I suppose we’d better give it a try
Now did you write an RFCThat dictated how we all should be
Did we listen like we should that day
Now were you back at RIPE fifty-four
Where we heard the same things months before
And the people knew they’d have to change their ways….
And we – knew that all the ISPs
Could be – future proof for centuries
But that was then not now
Spent too much time playing WoW
ooh there was time we sat on IRC
Making jokes on how this day would be
Now there’s no more use for TCP
The day the routers died…
Chorus (chime in now)
So bye bye, folks at RIPE 55
Be persuaded to upgrade it or your network will die
IPv6 just makes me let out a sigh
But I spose we’d better give it a try
I suppose we’d better give it a try
I remember those old days I mourn
Sitting in my room, downloading porn
Yeah that’s how it used to be….
When the packets flowed from A to B
via routers that could talk IP
There was data..that could be exchanged between you and me….
Oh but – I could see you all ignore
The fact – we’d fill up IPv4
But we all lost the nerve
And we got what we deserved!
And while…we threw our network kit away
And wished we’d heard the things they say
Put all our lives in disarray
The day…the routers died…
Chorus (those silent will be shot)
So bye bye, folks at RIPE 55
Be persuaded to upgrade it or your network will die
IPv6 just makes me let out a sigh
But I spose we’d better give it a try
I suppose we’d better give it a try
Saw a man with whom I used to peer
Asked him to rescue my career
He just sighed and turned away..
I went down to the net cafe
that I used to visit everyday
But the man there said I might as well just leave…
And now we’ve all lost our purpose..my cisco shares completely worthless…
No future meetings for me
At the Hotel Krasnapolsky
and the men that make us push and push
Like Geoff Huston and Randy Bush
Should’ve listened to what they told us….The day…the routers….died
Chorus (time to lose your voice)So bye bye, folks at RIPE 55
Be persuaded to upgrade it or your network will die
IPv6 just makes me let out a sigh
But I spose we’d better give it a tryI suppose we’d better give it a try

Y toda esta maravilla de canción se la debemos a Gary Feldman

Hace unos 30 años nací en Sevilla y aunque desde la infancia he estado rodeado de ordenadores no puede decirse que haya estado vinculados a ellos hasta que no empece a estudiar una carrera superior. Por suerte para el mundo informático mis notas no fueron lo suficientemente buenas como para hacerme médico, por lo que hubo un giro en mis vocaciones y empecé a estudiar el título de Técnico Superior en Informática de Sistemas, después de lo cual pasé a estudiar la carrera de Ingeniería Técnica en Informática de Sistemas. Allí fue donde me pelee, junto con Enrique, con muchas asignaturas difíciles. Tras acabar la carrera, y casi sin darme cuenta, me vi trabajando en una consultora de informática de Madrid. Lugar en donde vivo actualmente y donde desarrollo labores de programador, diseñador gráfico.... Si te preguntas por lo que espero de este proyecto, pues comenzar en algo en lo debería de haberme puesto hace un tiempo. Siempre he estado interesado en los blogs y salvo algunos breves escarceos en este mundo, nunca me puse en serio a escribir, y es algo que quiero cambiar. Saludos, Carlos Jiménez
