Why the Firewall guys always cause so many problems!

I found this bottle of Port in one of my local restaurants (Nandos in Norwich) and had to take a photograph. My family (and the rest of the diners) thought I was completely mad. Old Invalid Port just tickled my sense of humor and made me remember how many implementation issues have been because a firewall is improperly configured and blocking the important port that the application needs to work.

    I thought you might like to know what the label on Bowen's Old Invalid Port actually says:

    As an invalid wine it is invaluable
    Equally suited for the Connoisseur

    The Laboratory
    Bow and Bromley Institute
    London E
    March 11th 1896

    “I have carefully analysed and dietetically examined the Invalid Port submitted to me, and found the wine to be an exceptionally pure product, thoroughly aged and possessing a most delicate flavour and bouquet.

    From the result of my experiment I can testify to the genuine character and dietetic qualities and unbiased tasting certify it to be a high class wine of great purity”

    I wonder what the Advertising Standards Authority might say about that message today?
