I forgot to post this last week, but the wife and I found out we will be having a boy this coming August. Now honestly I have being dealing with nothing but Barbie’s, Disney Princesses, pink, frilly, frizzy, Hannah Montana, and everything else nice with my eight year old daughter. Needless to say it was a very big shot in the arm when I found out it was going to be a boy. I already went out and got him some Michigan U wear for his first couple months when he can sit and watch college football with me. Don’t get me wrong I love my daughter very much and what she brings to my life, but she never took to football, hockey, boy toys, and everything else I tried to get her to play with…

I told the wife we could get some headphones to lay on her stomach and play some CCIE audio training for him to listen to and all that got me was something heavy thrown my way. I am wondering if she will let me read him the sports section of the newspaper every night going forward…

I have nothing new to report this week :(. It has been a long two weeks at work the last two weeks. With the virus outbreak which was causing network problems and a few projects that came online I have been putting in fifty hours per week on average.

I did pick up some new commands for our ASA Box though. With the few machines we could not pin down right away we found they were trying send out packets to the internet. Our ASA box was syslogging their activity but not blocking it yet.

…was turned on to sniff out the traffic coming from the inside trying to get out. Once this was turned on it shut out the machines that were infected and trying to send out unwanted traffic. So all and all at least within the last two weeks I have been able to pick up some new Cisco commands and trouble shooting.

This week I need to finish my taxes as my top priority. Within the next few weeks I will be painting some rooms in preparation for the baby. I am hoping to get enough lab time in to take a shot at my mock lab on April 19th, if not I will just have to postpone it. The baby will be coming whether the rooms are ready or not so I need to make sure they are done!
