      A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the
      internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in
      particular.  The term is often misused in a pejorative context,
      where "cracker" would be the correct term.  See also: cracker.
      A cracker is an individual who attempts to access computer systems
      without authorization.  These individuals are often malicious, as
      opposed to hackers, and have many means at their disposal for
      breaking into a system.  See also: hacker, Computer Emergency

What is this blog about? - Disclaimer

The author of the posts will not assume any liability or responsibility to any person or entity with respect to loss or damages incurred from information contained in this blog.

Any resemblance to some other training materials and/or CCIE exam is completely coincidental.

Initially, this blog was supposed to be a routing tutorial. But quickly it took completely new direction. It has become my attempt to check what I have learned so far, and what I still need to learn. It helps me organize my skills and thoughts related to routing.  It is my way of expressing myself through what I do on daily basis.

Digging through the Internet, I came across a few 'content lists' which more or less show what technologies/techniques and commands are required to become an expert. This is inspiration enough to create my own mini labs through which I hope I can master the routing.

Having said that, my blog is NOT designed to teach technologies but is merely my own point of reference while researching the technologies. It is my own notepad used to review the material and may not be 100% accurate from the technology point of view.

Therefore, I do not intend to answer any questions/comments related to the posts contained in this blog (I disabled comments for this reason) unless I find time. Then, I will be more than happy to reply to your email.

If you came across this blog and find it interesting, please bear in mind that it is my view of how things work which are presented on 'as is' basis. If you think you can benefit from it, I'm glad that my ramblings are useful.

However, if you truly want to learn technologies, please purchase the appropriate courses/bootcamps/workbooks etc.
