Recently a connection on LinkedIn (thanks Jason) brought my attention to RFC 1925, The Twelve Networking Truths. I was kind of ashamed that I didn’t know about this to start with but it may have been I have seen it before and forgotten. I thought if I didn’t know about this or remember there may be other ignorant people like me out there living in caves that haven’t seen this.
Not your typical RFC. Although not technical in nature it has some interesting rules that make a lot of sense.I think there is one rule missing though. Rule 13 – No matter how hard you wave an RFC in the air someone, somewhere is interpreting it different than you are so refer back to rule number 1.
