Job Qualification

A job posting just listed something like, “Experience using TCP/IP” as a requirement.

I’ve been using it since the fifth grade or so, when we networked two PCs together. I now use it on a daily basis. I’ve used it very extensively, including billions of ACKs, millions of SYNs and FINs, and even some RSTs and PSHs.

But I’m not just being a goofball. The job doesn’t seem to entail any low-level knowledge of TCP/IP. I think they’re just looking for someone who knows what it is. (I also have extensive experience using ICs, device drivers, and OS kernels.)

I don’t really want to work at this place.
