Imagine their surprise when I tell them "OpenBSD".
The tech support guys there are underpaid and underqualified. I've found it
easiest to just have an el-cheapo Windoze box around to plug in when
reporting connectivity problems so I can give them the answers that they can
understand and need to hear in order to be sure the problem is not in my
house but rather somewhere in their own infrastructure. I have one around
anyway for my wife so it's no biggy.
