Thank goodness ethernet never has problems with
negotiation going awry, and coming up with mismatched
duplexes, and vendors never had to implement
"no negotiation-auto" in their configs because
you couldn't count on everyone's implementations
working together just absolutely perfectly the first
time on bootup.  Yes, it sure is a good thing ethernet
never has issues like that which would cripple your
ability to get a box up and running at 2am.

PS--while we're at it, can I have a pony?
