Mechanical pencil, a sheet of paper for a straight edge, and a penny when you want to make a proffesional looking round object. I publish to Flickr using macro mode on my Fuji Finepix 5100 to make the picture.

No little Cisco hockey puck stencils, but last year when I sketched a steaming pile o' poo all parties involved understood this to be the Cisco ICS 7750 we were scheduled to replace.

Much of the enterprise market seems wedded to Visio as their network graphics tool, which locks them into Windows. Personally, I hate both little pictures of equipment and Cisco hockey-puck icons; I much prefer things like rectangles saying "7507 STL-1" or "M160 NYC-3".

Assuming you use *NIX platforms (including BSD under Mac OS X), what are your preferred tools for network drawings, both for internal and external use? I'd hate to be driven to Windows only because I need Visio.
