Oh yes I have said it before; even a blind squirrel will find a nut occasionally. It is surprising how these funny acting creatures with very small brains will still manage to find one kernel of substance even when times are bleakest. Squirrels are not the brightest of animals and if they appear to know what they are doing when they burry their acorns in the ground, don’t be fooled. During the desperate times they simply run around and dig hoping their many other pals might have planted a nut in the spot they happen to be digging in. Oh yeah, there’s no science to their efforts, I see them in my yard under my 100 foot tall oak trees every season digging and digging. Those that are not as industrious...
Once again it is clear that Narbik has earned the reputation as the hardest working man in America, UK, UAE, Poland, Australia, and now South Africa. My Armenian friend has been providing the best training materials and mentoring for future CCIEs. Hut now he has put together a 12 day curriculum. I had to ask him what the heck!? 12 days? So he sent me the details of his February 3rd class in Dubai. I am coming along for a few of those days to provide some advice and mentoring and relief from the daily grind. Here’s what he told me:
" We just finalized the date and the date for Dubai is Feb 3rd, the actual class runs for 12 days but some students may want to take the first 5 days. If Cisco makes an announcement my Nov/Dec timeframe on Version 5, the new changes will take effect on Jun/July so I will be PUSHING the students VERY hard. This is the curriculum and day to day activity: "
What Are Critical Network Problems?
What are your critical network problems? Every network has them. They are the problems that cause network outages, or are the precursor to network outages. Most networks have similar designs and have similar critical network problems. I've heard network staff say "our network is unique" and I always think to myself "if that's true, you have unique problems that you probably don't understand". Using well-known configurations allows network vendor technical staff to quickly understand your network and help diagnose problems in a crisis.
Python Scripting and the Blackjack "In Bet"ween Bet
I recently spent an hour or so at the local casino (Delaware Park) playing blackjack with my father-in-law. The table we chose had a side bet called “IN BETween”, which compares the player’s two cards to the dealer’s up card. If all three cards match, the player is paid a 30-1 return. If the dealer’s card is in between the two player cards (hence the name of the game),
Following the economic downturn, many employers upped their enlistment of socalled contract workers, also known as contingent employees. For some businesses, these contingent workers have become a permanent solution, eliminating a huge swath of full-time jobs with benefits, according to labor and business experts.
Eman and myself being gentlemen of somewhat more stature and experience often discuss whether there are really any new ground breaking technologies any more – ie the Cloud, Application firewalls et al. The latest new technology I have thought about is Software Defined Networking or SDN. Traditionally we have thought of each of our typical network devices as having three planes, namely:
Most probably, I won't be too original at this point but at the very beginning I would like to thank Eman for giving me such an opportunity to briefly introduce myself and write about my business ideas that came to my mind recently. The business ideas I would like to follow and eventually, turn into reality at some point in the future.

Collection of useful, relevant or just fun places on the Internets for 17th October 2013 and a bit commentary about what I’ve found interesting about them:
Breaking Moore’s Law
No law is more powerful or important in Silicon Valley than Moore’s Law — the simple idea that transistor density is continually increasing which means computing power goes up just as costs and energy consumption go down. It’s a clever idea we rightly attribute to Gordon Moore. The power lies in the Law’s predictability.
