Bryan and I are having a conversation across Jerrel's cubicle, and he's doing a pretty good job ignoring us until:

Bryan: One of their machines is set up to ping all of our servers every couple of minutes just to make sure the DNS is still working, but I changed the way the pages were generated, and the server was having to start a session instead of just serving up a static page. So I gave them a static page to link to instead.

Me: So what you're telling me is that we have a box over there and all it does is that it's the machine that goes "ping"?

Jerrel: Unnnnnnnnnnh.
