Don’t get comfortable

(photo credit: popsugar.com)

A short true life story to begin: I know a certain guy who traveled out of his native country to go further his education. However, he always had a plan to return “home” after his studies to build his business empire. 1 year after the completion of his studies, he found himself stuck abroad – the fear of “what to do if i return” had crippled him. He began to think to himself, “maybe this place isn’t so bad after all”…he had gotten comfortable. Continue reading

Using scripting to automate tasks

Recently, I had to make the same configuration on several devices. It would have been a bore to log into them one after the other to paste the configuration; therefore, I used a script to achieve this. I then wrote articles documenting what I did. You can find those articles here: part 1 and part 2.

Make it personal

Yes, we’ve heard God called different names by different people e.g. in Church, in the Bible, etc. Yes, Jesus came to die for your sins and mine. Yes, Jesus is the resurrected King. Yes, Jesus is the Prince of Peace. I can go on and on. But my point is this: Who is God to you personally? What is your personal experience about the God you’ve heard so much about?

In Matthew 16:13-14, the disciples of Jesus were telling Him who men say Jesus is. In verse 15, Jesus then asked them a question: “But whom say ye that I am?”

Slowly coming back

I’ve given this blog some thought and I feel it’s time to write more non-techy posts. The process may be slow but we will get there by God’s grace.

Two songs to start (or continue) your Monday. I was in a car on my way to the airport one day when I heard these songs playing on the radio. I didn’t catch their names but I wrote down the most sung part of the songs and googled them when I got to my destination.

BGP Articles

BGP

Hey guys,

It’s been a while since I last posted something. This week, we have technical articles on the Intense School site dealing with BGP. BGP is not well understood (because it is not used frequently by many people) and so I believe these articles will be beneficial to you:

Also, we have some other articles that are not related to BGP like the article on IPv6 adoption challenges and the different packet switching methods used in Cisco including fast switching and CEF.

Some of these articles are relevant to Cisco certifications and you should visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for more training options.

MPLS Articles

MPLS

MPLS articles

MPLS was one of those things I knew nothing about but now I’m on my way to knowledge. As I go along, I have also written some article relating to this technology. Great thing is the articles have been getting a lot of traffic and I hope you also benefit from them.

MPLS is more likely to appear in Cisco service provider exams than other tracks so you should visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for more training options.

More on IPv6

IPv6 tunnels

It’s been a while since we had any technical post on this blog so here goes. We have more IPv6 articles both from a Cisco perspective and tunneling mechanisms.

Some of these articles are relevant to Cisco certifications and you should visit the Intense School Cisco bootcamp page for more training options.
