Well I am I upgrading my 3550 switches at the moment to get a good image on them. The image I had on them must of been corrupt orginally. Right now I am on the EIGRP section of the lab.

It was a SLOW go this afternoon. So many things I forgot, so many times I was totally discouraged. So many time I was thinking “How am I going to pull this off?”. I accidentally closed out my dynamips without saving my configs, so I had to start the lab over. After I left the house for an hour and came back to start over it took me a lot less time to get everything configured. More importantly though I started to understand everything I was doing the second time. Not sure how many times I read the OSPF network types and couldn’t get it to sink in until I did it twice again this morning. I guess the biggest thing I took away from this was that hands on with these labs helps make everything so much clearer. I still have a ton of work ahead of me though.

    Congratulations on starting the Volume II labs. Don’t worry about speed at this point. I made that mistake when I started the full scale labs. It still takes me WAY longer than 8 hours to finish the labs.

    One thing that has helped me out quite a bit is getting used to using the univercd to find answers. I even look up stuff I know. I am much more comfortable with finding answers in the documentation because of this practice.

    BTW…a belated congratulations on your wife’s pregnancy. Enjoy those first-trimester boobs because you’ll want to look back on those good times once you’re exposed to the horror of third-trimester sex. And take it from me, making the beeping sound of heavy machinery backing up may seem funny at the time, but your wife will make you pay for it in the long term. 🙂
