I did it too

I just passed ONT with a 930. I started working on my NP back in Nov 07. My CCNA was going to expire in April of the following year so I had to make a decision of renewing it or work on NP. I bought CBTnuggets for BSCI which at that time was a lot of money for just videos which I didnt know if it would help. Those videos helped a lot and now a year and a half later I am CCNP. Now I can continue sutdying for lab next year. Way to start the holiday, Im going to celebrate by drinking some home brew later on.

    Congrats. Remember to configure routers and switches wisely over the Holiday weekend!:)
    I usually hang out on 224.0.0.10 (FF02::A) and 224.0.0.5 (FF02::5) when I'm in a non-proprietary mood.

    Thanks everyone, my NP logos was made available today so I uploaded it as my avatar.

    Slowhand, I was studying for the lab whenever I got burnt out with studying NP so far IEWB1 I finished the first 6 labs and now they released BGP section so I will probably load the initial configs and maybe start on that. Work is slow and I setup remote access to my rack so I can spend some time during work to work on labs but now I can give it 100% so hopefully I can take a bootcamp in Nov-Dec this year and again next year before the lab.

    Jason, are you an extract or all grain brewer and what are you going to brew. I just got some equipment to go all grain for a 5 gallon batch. I used my extract equipment to do 2.5 gallon AG. Im getting a 55# sack of Maris Otter today and will be brewing a pale ale with orange peel and coriander and Im going to keg my Jamil blonde ale this weekend. So I think I have enough beer and variety for the summer.

    Kryolla,
    I am an all-grain brewer. I am very fond of the indian pale ale's, and I have another competition smoked scottish ale that I enjoy in the winters (probably what I'll brew this w/e though). Yours sounds like it will be a winner! All-grain is the way to go...just like the cisco cli, you just have so much more control with it. Congrats again, and enjoy!

    Congrats man! I haven't even thought about starting the CCIE. Not sure I want to go down that road as of yet....

    I might just jump over to voice.
