Archer, I barely know 'er

Last year around the time of the BP oil spill I was feeling a lot of anger toward them. I printed this out and drove to the archery range to show them.

The thing about it

So Thing-a-day is already a bust.  I don't have the time or projects to sustain this adventure right now.

I really should be studying.

Another time.

Nice Rack

I aquired this little AV half rack from work a couple of months ago and have slowly been consolidating my tech into it ever since. It's not a perfect fit for everything, the PE 1950 sticks out the back about 8" or so and is sitting on a shelf because Dell rails don't fit threaded holes. The printer is too big.

The Cisco gear is:
  • Catalyst 2950 switch
  • Catalyst 2960 switch
  • Cisco 2600 router
It's a beginner CCNA lab. I'd like to have at least one more router and another switch but this is working for now. It's nice to walk through the CBT Nuggets videos with and that's what matters.

The before picture is no gem, but the after picture is not much better.  I reorganized the shelf but to what end?  

a clean desk is a sign of a sick mind

Thing a Day v2 begins.  An easy first one because I'm already balancing several large projects in life and at work.

My desk has two monitors! Yep, that's a mismatched Samsung 226BW and a Dell 2007FP in portrait. A Dell keyboard with media controls, the audio knob being its best feature, as the two USB ports on it are only 1.1.

I cleaned paperwork that was 3 months old. The only remaining paperwork is taxes which will be sent out in the next few days I guess.  The Cisco book can't go far as I'm knee deep in studying for the ICND2.
