Oh, forgot English...Good Evening! I am a Cisco man (you knew? What gave it away? You c0d3rz...), and my flavor is security. I am a CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, Canon ATSP Silver, CCNA (R&S, but got it way before they split them up into different categories), CCNA Security, CCNP (R&S, but again before they were all split up, so my NP covered everything), CXFS (Cisco Express Foundation Field Specialist) and passed the CCIE Security written in April...but have not scheduled the lab...YET! Soon. Anyway, I know very intimately the following: First and foremost, Cisco networking---routing, switching, security, some wireless, some VoIP; computer and server hardware; OSs---D0z3 (3.x, 95, 98, NT, ME---wait, I won't admit to that one, scratch that---2K, 2K Server, 2K Advanced Server, XP, 2K3 Standard and Enterprise, Vista---wait, won't admit to that one either...can we still call it "Longhorn"? lol---2K8 Server and 7; Linux---played with many flavors, including SuSE (who hasen't?), Knoppix, Red Hat (should have just said that rather than SuSE ), Mint (not so hot about that one, esp. v9.x), Ubuntu (which translates to, "I don't know how to install Debian"...lol---j/k), l0phtCr4ck, and a few other live CD/DVD small distros originally built for specific tasks like rewriting SAM :)---UNIX---AIX, HP-UX, Tru64, Solaris (some 8, more of 9 and mostly v10); Alpha---OpenVMS 7.x, VAX-VMS (yes, I have been known to work on MicroVAX-II's and VAX4000s and 6000s---some are still in use...Government, hello! ). As far as programming goes, not so much. I did own a Timex Sinclair 1000 when I was about 11 or 12, and programmed some in BASIC with it and the Commodores (when they had Lionel Ritchie...), like the VIC-20, 64, 128. I also know a lot about Canon copiers, segment 3, 4 and CLCs, from the 6650v1 all the way through the iR series, right after the 7200s came out, as well as a fair amount of electronics knowledge (theory, EMF, capacitance, capacitive reactance, inductance, ind reactance, Ohms Law, P=IE, Pythagorean Theorem (figured I'd throw it out there, in case someone has a question relating to a hypotenuse), EIEIO, etc. I don't cook. Oh, and I know how to boot people out of Yahoo chat rooms
One more thing---sometimes I am simply oblivious to the concept of shutting up
I hope to contribute as much as I can, and of course to learn as well.
