Cisco Cert Update – Feb 2017

It has been a while since I’ve visited the land of Cisco certs (along with any new posts since my official Meetup retirement a month or so ago). However, one of the many things we need to do to keep up to date in our industry (along with the other items I outlined in my Quarterlys) is to keep up to date.

Fellow Networkers,

After a long run (almost 5 years!!) of running the meetup, meeting great people and friends, I’ve decided its now time to move on to other endears in my career and personal life. Some of you probably noticed I am not as active in doing meetups as I have been in the first few years of running the meetup as as I’ve grown in my career I’ve started to focus my time on other avenues and I just cannot continue to run the meetup as the “main” guy anymore.

As of Jan 1st 2017, I will be “retiring” as Lead Organizer of this meetup. This is not to say I will completely disappear, I will attend meetups that the other organizers in the group will do from time to time.

I also continue my challenge to members of the group for someone to take ownership of the meetup and take leadership in running the group. I will always be around to help, but I hope theres another hungry networker out there looking to grab the bull by the horns and start doing meetups consistently.

It’s been a really fun 5 years, going from a newly minted CCNP, to doing Voice, Security, Wireless, Datacenter, working for different companies and meeting different people, I can turly say running a meetup takes alot of work and dedication but for someone who is passionate about the field its a great way to met people in the industry and challenge oneself.

Having the family over, of course someone wants to watch a movie off my Synology box. After copying it over, I ran into the vague Unknown Error when playing back the file. Now my dilemma, family wants to watch THIS movie, and of course they ask the “IT guy” to fix it.
