Best way to remember the OSI model

Years ago when I was learning networking I used the following mnemonic to remember the OSI layer

LOL, thats the one i learned too at University of Buffalo in the late 90’s!

Ah-hah, that’s a classic one. I was taught on this mnemonic ten years ago: (goes the other way around)

Physical        Please   
Data Link           Do   
Network            Not   
Transport        Throw   
Session        Sausage   
Presentation     Pizza   
Application       Away

It can seem a little superfluous and silly with these mnemonics, but the OSI Model is a brilliant troubleshooting tool when working in the industry. Over time if you work with networking frequently, it gets ingrained into your head and flows easily.
