Grrrrrrrrrr my legs are sore from playing in the mudbowl yesterday.
Our Cisco representative (Mark) just came by to have lunch with Justin and I. He brought Justin some ATM and broadband books, and he brought me "Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices" and the related source material so I can begin to study for my CCNA. This is like $250 of books or more and he just gave them to us. Pretty cool stuff.
Isaac just put it all into perspective for me. I had a hard time understanding why my boss wants to put a lot of money into a fancy network that I don't think we need. He told me that "Justin is a network guy," and that's what he likes. That's probably 100% on the money. He probably looks at all the money that I want to spend on servers the same way I look at his network.
Eric went to The Acropolis with some of his old college buddies.
