Excellent  feedback, Tom. And, that goes for all comments received so far. Much appreciated.

My belief is, so many of us have been beaten-down in the working world and have become gun-shy when offering suggestions. It's completely understandable. What I'm offering is a place of safety. None of your comments will be left-out, or derided. All comments are important as all of you are important no matter your level of expertise. Some of the best comments come from people with very little experience in the field. 

So, what have I bee doing? I'm collecting all comments, going over them, then, I'll disseminate them to the group without the name of the person who suggested it. There's a lot for me to "take-in" concerning the comments and I'm trying to put a 'picture' of them in my head, then, try and offer some actionable suggestions to the group. My hope is other's will respond with actionable suggestions too.

I'll have something ready by the middle of the week. I've been rebuilding my website ( on a  new software platform. My site is enormous. There's thousand of links and documents. So, its eating up my time. 


Take care,

Specifically, for myself, maybe at one of the monthly meetings -- I'd appreciate discussing a -*very*- junior network design with one of the CCIE's. I don't know, maybe I could share it with the group in a sort of presentation?

As I have a basic grasp of the material and subjects of CCNA what is interesting to me is engineering a network of sorts. I want to setup an intranet of sorts in my house to put some of my training into practice. But I'd like the input or design suggestions of someone more senior / versed with networking.

An eyeball of it, of sorts, to make sure i'm on the right track.

Would that be something I could bring to the group and discuss?

Brilliant, Matthew! Thanks for this. 
I'll go over it a few times and see what we can come up with over the next couple of weeks. 

Awesome feedback,
