Hey Bro,

I am on my 5th attempt. I Get to have drinks with some of the authors of of Cisco press books, and with other I get to work with them. I am not dumb, just have not praticed all the concepts they could throw at me as of yet. I hope on this 5th attempt I have done all that was asked of me, but one thing you must admit to yourself is that you just have more to learn. Even if you get the CCIE, what does it matter to you unless you can look at it and respect what it took to earn it. For some of us, this form of logic come very very easy to them, and for that my hat goes off to them. For others, it takes us a little bit more.

ps. My old man a very good doc (MD), he was not the best in his test scores in school, but when he was finsihed they still called him a MD, and now he is doing 100X better then the number one guy in his test scores.....its all heart and not giving up.
