While the IT gods were hammering me this week, they were shining brightly on Arden Packeer (actually no supernatural assistance was needed, Arden was more than prepared for the lab). Arden became CCIE #20716. He has posted his story so surf on over and show him some love.
Ethan and Arden both went one and done on the lab. Thanks for raising the expectation bar you guys. :-p
