Back on track –
Happy new year all –
I am still studying for the CCIE, as this is taking up all my spare time i have not posted any progress for a while.
I am done with the reading of all of the books i wanted to read, the next time i will using them for reference.
Reading a ton of books can be a bad thing as there is so much to cover in the CCIE by the time you are finishing the last book the first book seems like an age away and most of the greater detail is lost or in my case gone to grey matter!
But the idea was not to get every tiny detail out this way, for me anyway.
So i am using the INE ATC videos right now and as always INE’s videos is on the money.
Spending a great deal of time travelling to and from work i get in the zone real quick – i can see people on the train glance at my laptop screen and wonder just what kind of TV show i am watching!
During the Christmas break we went for a walk around the Bailgate area of Lincoln where we live. In the ground of Lincoln Cathedral is a memorial statue of the great poet Alfred Lord Tennyson who came from a from Lincolnshire.
Having watched Skyfall (James Bond) at the end of 2012, it reminded me of the poem “Ulysses” – which is quoted in the film.
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
