always been fond of:
when in doubt, do as the doubtians
how geeky! I like that :)
Might emberras myself but...
I don't stalk, I traceroute.
If it is too difficult, you are just not geek enough.
It's not the network, it must be the servers!
How do you know you are a geek? #1: A girl starts to ask you about the weather and you tell her about some storms and lightning in the cloud.
Ping me, I must be dreaming (nice rack).
ok, that was from the top of my head, maybe I can think of some more later.
PS: how can you get those stickers and buttons?
Thanks for the great ideas, Questionario! I especially love the traceroute and ping references. I'll make sure you get your hands on some of the existing stickers and buttons in appreciation for your creative insight. Stay tuned!
I've seen this one on someone's signature line on their Thwack account:
"There are only 10 people who understand binary, those who do and those who don't."
I also like "I read your email."
little word game maybe (supposed to make a sentence) :
My baby is now virtual in the cloud.
It's all geek!
Also like these:
I'm not anti-social, I'm just not user friendly
Roses are #FF0000, Violets are #0000FF, all my base are belong to you
I had a dream… and there were 1’s and 0’s everywhere, and I think I saw a 2!

My favourite website is Orion!
(I dont think I can post the URL of the german domain ending with orion here... )
Must be the day I've had, but all i can think of is:
This one is old:
"Bow before me, for I am ROOT!"
One other from me
"Network admins do it in the closet"
Jspanitz... all I can say is that I truly laughed out loud. I must be having the same kind of day. :)
"GEEK is not a four letter word, it's a six figure income"
@NickBhavsar - Got any job openings? :)
@juliemaya - If I could get my hands on the "I'm not babbling. I'm just encrypted" or any of the other bling, that would be cool.
I also have:
I'd call you a genius, but I'm in the room.
Saving the network, one trap at a time.
Will probe your ports for food.

I'm gonna wr erase your a$$

Virtual Pool: No Diving
I'm not thin. I'm just provisioned that way
I've got a VD (with irtual esktop in very small letters below the VD)

Virtual is Reality
Solarwinds should sell mugs with these on!
Well...I don´t know if my last neuron is not working at this hours but I think you have a very good material with the subjects of some posts, those are interesting, curious, and at some points funny, because they resume with only a phrase all the problems that one can have:
Some posts that I have seen contain:
- Can a Dynamic DNS node be monitored?
- enable password incorrect
- Menu Bars gone wild!
- Page customization question (sql stuff)
- Traps Gone Wild?
- More fun with filter syntax
- Craziness in charts
- your best bet is to open a support ticket
ROOT - if you don't know what it is - you don't need it.
Jolt Cola - Putting the P back in IP
E Pluribus Modem
I caught the Ether-Bunny in my Ethernet
Does fuzzy logic tickle?
RAM Disk is not an installation instruction.
Press any key really means ANY key
The name is BAUD - James Baud
Disinformation is not as good as datinformation
For the wireshark or Sniffer users:
"I sniffed your packet"
"Let me use my tool to sniff your packets"
"Sniffing ain't easy"
"Let me check your packet offset"
"The truth is in the packet"
"The packet will set you free"
hmm, I wouldnt want to run around with one of the first two things written on me anywhere ;-)
Not sure if you would survive going from bar to bar with a shirt like that on a weekend :P
Hello, fellow geeks!
Thanks for the many great suggestions. We pulled a few of them and sent them off to the printer to make buttons and stickers for VMworld Copenhagen. I've attached a preview so that you can let us know what you think! There are still a lot of great ones you guys have contributed, so stay tuned to see which ones are next in our design queue!
Special thanks to:
- jspanitz -- you rock! we pulled 3 of your slogans... hope you like the design work!
- Phantomvirus -- thanks for the great Ether-bunny slogan
- Donald_Francis -- "bow before me for I am root" is an oldie, but a goodie; thanks for reminding us
We will be sending all of you some free geeky gear to thank you for the great submissions... check your email inboxes for details.
Keep the suggestions and comments coming -- we love hearing from you guys and gals!
how about something like "I TCP/IP but mostly IP"??
OK I got one that probably will not apply but I thought it was funny, thought of it while doing some water cooler standup.
"Show me on the switch where the bad router touched you..."
Don't let the mask fool you, I'm on your subnet.
Proctologist's favorite shell command is "C: <Enter>"
I'd rather have a proxy in front of me than a firewall block me

Cisco (config-if)# no shutdown
It's a loopback, OSI stack, get the packet home!
I Know What You Changed Last Night!
Thwack is where it's at.
I'll find your single point of failure if you find mine.
My QoS is why you met your SLA.
"Its an ID-10T error...."
Who finds permissions funny? We all know you love having the power to deny or grant access... go ahead and admit it! We need a good geeky slogan to express how you really feel about this fun part of your job. Here's what we have come up with so far:
- Don't Make Me Change Your Permissions.
- I got your permissions right here.
- Mother, May I Have Access?
Would love to hear your thoughts -- are these funny? or should we go back to the drawing board? Suggestions are welcome!! In fact, we'll even reward you with some geek gear if we produce your slogan. Let's hear those slogans!!
I really love this:
Documentation is like ***: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing
OK I like the the first 2 expecially the second one.
Here is mine.
- What do you mean you don't have access? <evil snicker>
-Did you have access before? Ok then.....
-All ur permissions r belong to me!
-Computer says noooooo.
-OK so what are you willing to trade?
-Permissions... You need'em... but I got'em....
-pppppssssssttt hey you, yea you... you need access????
Trust, but monitor.
From our own Accent on Exellence departmental motto we coined:
"Accent on Excel-ence, truly the last Word" for the Excel classes.

desktop slave geek
PICNIC (problem in chair, not in computer)
Life is tough, but it's tougher when you're stupid!
Here's one from my daily work:
Of cause I can make a report - I got all the data in Orion.
"Go away before I replace you with a very small shell script"
"What was your username? Clickety-click"
"We've virtualized everything except the users"
Step 1: Blame the network.
Step 2: Wait for network team to rule out the network
Step 3: Begin troubleshooting process.
How i can get the "network geek" and all the old jpg?
Should I recognise a certain arm in there???
I guess the ones from me have to be suitable silly so how about....
'He's not the messiah - he's a very naughty geek.........'
'May the geek be with you'
'If at first you don't succeed, power it off and back on'
I think a set of slogans from The Most Interesting IT Man in the World would be perfect. Those videos always crack me up.

Artificial Intelligence usually beats natural stupidity
If at first you don't succeed; call it version 1.0
Life would be so much easier if we only had the source code
Relax, its only ones and zeros!
The world is coming to an end... Save your buffers!
Better to be a geek than an idiot
Problem in chair not in computer
I'm really surprised "Trust but verify" hasn't been posted yet!
