RE: NOC Personel Question (Possibly OT)

Anyway, I have a friend who used managed to get "Not A Janitor" on his
business card.
"Rear Admiral" was my favorite business card title if only because that was also the caller ID on my phone (I managed the PBX at the time).

I've seen "Systems/Unix/DNS Ninja." At my current job I make breakfast on Thursday mornings for the team I work with- I'm trying to get business cards that say either "Head Chef" or "Chief Cook and Bottle Wash."

Before this gets too wildly off-topic- perhaps the original poster can comment as to why NOC Specialist is a problem?

We call our level 1 NOC people "Operators." We reserve Network Analyst for the level 2 people who also do some small amount of scripting and other more advanced troubleshooting. Network Analyst makes me think of Stock Analysts, though. The problem is that they aren't very good at telling me what kind of returns I can expect on my equipment and what the future holds for the network :)

Has anyone thought to clearly define these titles somewhere so that everyone can standardize on them?
