I spent the weekend at Ole Miss as my oldest son registered for classes in the Fall. During the weekend my mind wandered comparing the registration process to network emulators.
Standing in the Southwest Airlines boarding line = Network Queues.
Hundreds of parents going through one door = Throttle impairment.
Partying too much in the Oxford Square = Packet Loss Impairment
Not getting every desired class = Reorder impairment
Friendly College Staff = Great Technical Support
