Slack… 18 months since my last blog post. Initially I had the excuse, or made the excuse that I was studying for the CCIE and no longer had the time to write any blog posts. Then about 6 months ago I finally passed the CCIE. I decided after that to take a break for a bit. Then maybe do a post to write up how I passed the CCIE – because I had changed so much between the 3rd and 4th attempt. Days turned into weeks, weeks into months – you get the idea. After being committed to something for so long it was good to take a break. Well now I’m back and what better way to start than with how I passed the CCIE.
