    Just sit down and watch the iMAC commercial over and over and

    you'll feel better.

    After working until about 7:30 (pm) I didn't feel like going out. Besides, I need to finish upgrading my landlord's computer so that I can give it back to him and get paid for it.

    Got to see Stargate SG1 on Showtime... and now listening to my iPod.. :D gotta love that little bit of Apple wonder.

    being overweight and my age, it is hard to have the energy...don't laugh, you will be there someday

    but saturday night is another issue...i could rest all day, eat, then go out

    but tonight, i had to take an online test for my cisco studies...gross...i got an 87 which will do for me...i am not one of those cs geniuses who pull 100s week after week...darn, this cisco stuff is hard and it is never a sure thing that cisco will be around for much longer...the ceo says they have to grow at 30 percent a year, still, to just survive...good luck...it could all be in vain

    ...maybe i should have been out dancing my brains out til 4 am...yeah, right:p

    Not the only one...

    With too much work going on at the same time, I just stayed at home programming a Cocoa utility so I can save the titles of all my CDs...

    But tomorrow I'll go out to the movies somewhere in central London. Yipppi!

    Like you, I have been learning that cisco stuff! Its a pain isn't it! When I first started taking the tests I was getting in the 90's regularly. However, I now get in the 80's. Nevermind, its a pass. They better be around for a long time becasue I have put a lot of time and money into getting the qualification.

    I like to be at home. Right now I'm very exited producing video fotage for my VJ presentations.

    I'm working a lot with ArtMatic wich is a software that creates ramdom patterns and then you can create quick time movies out of them.

    Is bad to wanted to go out on a friday night, that means you didn't go out enough during the week.

    I'm 27 now and things change a little, when I was younger I though I was waisting my time spending a week end at home, but that is just too much energy acumulated because of the age.

    I'm glad here in Venezuela we have a lots of caffes in the open air, that mean that you can go out with some one and the you will find a lot of other peole in the cafe and become a big group.

    But when I was younger I decided to spend more time with my equipment because I like them a lot, and then I became an expert in midi and some other stuff. Unfortunately that doesn't make any mony here in my country. So, I decided to go with visuals then, easy to sell.

    i is just spying on you guys

    i have no interest in becoming a roving cisco techie as i am a microsoft roving field techie and i don't want to spread myself too thin

    ...with microsoft there is enough to learn and then have to implement and support before one can really call themselves a true network administrator

    ...a BS or MS degree or mcse just won't cut it in the silicon valley unless you want to be branded a "paper tiger"...all theory and no know-how...it is the kiss of death in this field to become a paper tiger, so get good experience in your lab at school or in your house before you even put out your first resume

    trust this old 38 year old newbie...i learned the hard way and in silicon valley, so now i am back tracking and i am just a network engineer/analyst/help desk/client side/technician, but i don't dare call myself an administrator...that is usually the guy who has the very last say on a network...one that he/she usually designed and set up

    all the non techies in a biz will call you a network administrator not knowing any other terminology

    there is only one certification, network techie side, that is considered a season professional right out of school...that is the CCIE or cisco certified internetworking expert and it is known as the phd of the networking certifications...but after the CCNA, it's at least another five years for that designation

    the silicon valley is brutal and letters behind names don't mean jack unless it says CEO or ccie (if you are a techie)
