And by default don't they tell that to everone that asks?

SNMP is cool, but the first time I set it all up, it took a reasonably
serious amount of time -- a few hours to get it all talking...  We use
it for a lot now, and I probably did more research than was required just
to get it functioning...  I'd probably use a script (if there isn't already
one) to just set it up on one box though.  I'm all for learning something
new though.

 If I built a talking Barbie, it would say "Date math is hard."
