  Mechanical pencil, a sheet of paper for a straight edge, and a penny 
when you want to make a proffesional looking round object. I publish to 
Flickr using macro mode on my Fuji Finepix 5100 to make the picture.

  No little Cisco hockey puck stencils, but last year when I sketched a 
steaming pile o' poo all parties involved understood this to be the 
Cisco ICS 7750 we were scheduled to replace.
