Lot’s of things have been going on. There was a big announcement at work, but I’ll cover that in a later post.
Studying wise, I’ve done a LOT of Multicasting and OSPF studying. I’ve gone really deep into OSPF, using and configuring certain properties of the protocol that I just don’t see myself using in real life. You do need to know it for the exam though. Also at the end of the day it gives me a deeper understanding of the protocol itself, and I suppose it also gives me another tool on my ever expanding belt. I do need to come up with some posts explaining these properties.
I also upgraded my NAS. I had a Synology DS210j, upgraded now to a DS411. This gives me far more space and I can run raid5. I’ve got Sabnzdb, Sickbeard, Couch Potato, Headphones and a few other choice apps running on it :)
