Interesting Pinging

Try this below.  Its interesting.  If you have some "0"s in your IP address, you can leave them out of a ping and it will still ping just fine (provided it will respond anyway).  Below, I'm pinging 10.0.0.91, but as you can see, I only type in 10.91 instead. 

C:\Users\switch>ping 10.91
