Blogger Destroys Router

Ah, remember the olden days when Blogger had to beg for money from users to get new hardware? These days, the hardware is begging Blogger -- FOR MERCY.

What a bunch of turkeys. That's not a router. It's a Foundry ServerIron. Or a FastIron. Either way, it's a Foundry switch, and it's not a router.
Kind of strange. I've never had any problems with the Foundry stuff I owned, and we had piles of it at Netscape. It was always trouble free.

Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.

drstein, could also be an nsr-16 router. The same basic foundry box can go from a basic managed switch all the way up to a full bgp speaking router.

It's a nice (but old) box either way, can't imagine why they would destroy it. Plenty of non-profits, etc would love to have it. I also have gone through tons of foundry gear, and besides the well-known problem with their molex based multimode optics, they are great boxes.

Of the pictures were the thing can be seen up close only the thumbnails remain. Maybe the legal department or the vendor asked them to remove the large pictures to prevent identification of the hardware?

Ha, surmising a conspiracy theory/ censorship online. That's a thing I hadn't done yet.

From the router's perspective, and considering that google owns blogger, doesn't this break the "do no evil" prime directive?

That was a terrible, terrible limerick.
