I guess that it was to be expected, but I fell off of the wagon a bit this week. Spring rolled into Minnesota this weekend (and it seems to have rolled right back out again). Not only was I burned out by the hours that I had put in the last two weeks, but the weather and housework conspired against me.
I didn’t have enough time on Sunday to complete a full Volume II lab, so decided to do Volume III lab 5. I usually fly through these labs (except for IGP redistribution) so I figured that I would limit myself to 4 hours and knock this sucker out. Let’s just say that lab 5 wasn’t the sucker that got knocked out. 🙂
After 4 hours I had just reached IGP redistribution. Ouch!!! There wasn’t anything that I hadn’t seen before, just a lot of ‘unique’ tasks and more of them. It was a humbling experience.
Here are my goals from last week: Review the IEATC IPv6 and BGP videos. Redo Volume II lab 9. Do Volume III lab 6.
I did manage to redo most of Volume II lab 9. I found this to be a pretty tough lab as well. I completed the IPv6 videos (I feel a lot better about my IPv6 skills now) and did (most of) Volume III lab 5, not lab 6.
Here are my goals this week: Review BGP videos. Finish Volume III lab 5. Redo Volume II lab 10. Start redoing the Volume I BGP labs.
