Dust if off and share it with the community in the comments below, or you’re welcome to add it our list of engineering jokes, if it is engineering or telecom related.


Did You Know

That yesterday, Saturday, October 29, 1969, the first message on the internet was transmitted. An UCLA student, Charley Kline, attempted to send the text “login” over the first link on the ARPANET to a computer at the Stanford Research Institute. The system crashed after the first two letters were entered, so the first internet message was, “lo”. However, after recovering from the crash approximately an hour later, the full text “login” was successfully sent. 



Have a great week and keep networking!
