Re: Computers for kids / Christmas present

My parents bought my daughter a Kindle Fire when she was just turning 7 (with my permission). She mostly plays games, but reads books, draws, reads to the baby & now uses the Khan Academy app to help study math. We're also teaching her how to research on it. We stressed her taking care of it and...

Re: Cisco and Linux hand in hand for career?

Any extra OS skills would be beneficial to a networker's career. Often I'm troubleshooting connectivity between *nix based systems, and either given shell access to perform testing or gather information (ip configs, traceroutes, tcpdumps, etc...) or provided scripts generated by system admins that a...

Re: Weekend? bossanova?

Have today off, but in-laws coming in from out of town this weekend, so a lot of cleaning going on. In the spare time, some drinking, gaming & playing around with IPTV stuff (for both home & enterprise), which means a lot of linux, multicast, maybe some ipv6 and more drinking.

Re: MySQL? APACHE? Etc advice

It's especially helpful, being a network engineer (whether design, admin or other) to be able to speak the language of the customers you are dealing with, or at least understand their language enough to make working with them easier. Knowing the basics of DB, VM, MS, etc... can go a long way. You'll...

Re: Tomato, DD-WRT, etc...

DD-WRT on two routers - one is primary wireless, the other is a client providing wired access to a portion of the house. Works great & beats running cables.

Re: Cisco Press Kindle and iBooks.

I've been working on ONS 15454 gear in a lab lately, so on the train I read & take notes on the work I want to do that day, then keep the guides open on the tablet propped up for quick & easy reference. That way when I get in, I hit the ground running. Since i'm limited to only my laptop in ...

Re: Cisco Press Kindle and iBooks.

I like using my Andriod tablet for the technical books in PDF form. Everything renders properly, but it can be a pain in the neck to navigate through larger books. I still prefer print, but I tend to commute a lot so a tablet with a plethora of books, config guides, white papers, etc... is better th...

Re: Torrents

IMO downloading TV shows from torrents should not be illegal, it should be embraced. The main issue is advertising though - most shows available for torrent don't have commercials. This leads to issues as companies pay to have their spots shown during certain times of certain shows, so the advertisi...

Re: Network Ethics

You bet your ass it's a security risk. However, if you replaced it last year then he obviously doesn't keep track of what is and is not on his network, nor did he take any steps to isolate a foreign, untrusted portion of the network from the rest of his resources. If this was my network I'd have kn...

Re: FabricPath

I remember now the FAB2 weren't a requirement for FP or the F2 module, but 6.0 or greater is a requirement for both. I agree on the F3 cards, but by the time they do come out, and if they seem solid, it will probably be enough to justify completely replacing the M1 cards. By then we'll probably have...

Re: The "look what i grilled" thread

soak your corn in the husk, in water for about 30 mins prior to grilling, you can grill the corn right in the husk, steams the corn inside, comes out delicious. takes about 20 mins or so to cook. That's normally what I do, but the corn was a late addition & already husked (extra from my parents...

Re: FabricPath

N7K-M132XP-12 & N7K-F132XP-15. We thought about the F2, but would've had to upgrade the SW to 6, upgrade to Fabric2 cards, add a VDC which took us over budget & complicated the particular project. As far as future cards, I've heard the next gen of F series cards will have L3 support, interop...

Re: Find STP root port via SNMP

I believe 26 refers to the STP interface index, which is mapped to the ifTable.ifIndex in another table in one of the STP mibs. Not sure which but can look it up after my commute.
