ok so Mr. Morris has done his job.  Now can ALL OF U stop this mindless
chatter and stop SPAMMING my inbox with non-technical issues????

Thanks in Advance

That's odd. When were you added to the moderator team? It's odd that I don't see your name on that list. For the record, mine is on it.


As a moderator, I think it's perfectly appropriate to recognize a long-term contributor with a major personal event, just as some reasonable level of humor can both lift tension -- and, when technical, even provide tricks for remembering some point of technology. There have been times when a contributor has been ill, and people have taken notice.

Maintaining a reasonable humane quality, while staying focused, is even relevant to the focus of the list. Many people have posted how they dealt with stresses in passing, in failing and preparation. Sometimes that comes across as a cry from the heart, and the people here will understand it better than most.

Having a sense of the people involved can help under stress, specifically including the exam itself. In the early days of CCIE, to the best of my knowledge, only one person that was a CID or CIT instructor didn't pass the first time -- because that person got angry with the proctor. Said instructor passed easily the second time. Some human discussion, I suspect, will help people deal with proctors.

I assume that anyone at a technical level at which they consider the CCIE should be able to invoke a simple mail or news filtering rule. This thread hasn't changed titles--until you tacked on "(Is this a technical discussion???)", possibly breaking the filtering rules for people who chose, quietly, to ignore the thread.

I personally tend to find people who use "chat speech" such as referring to "you" as "U" rather mindless, but that's obviously a personal opinion. If, however, you find this list too mindless, or a source of spam, an obvious solution is unsubscribing.

 I think Scott had a little something to do with it, if my understanding
 of human reproduction is correct...

 Everyone is congratulating Scott.  He didn't do anything.  I would like
 to congratulate his wife. So now Scott remember you are a Father not a
 babysitter.

 Thanks,
