Personal headers

 | 21 Jan 2006 21:04

Finally got round to sorting out my own site header images, was getting tired of seeing vSlider up there. So I used the piccies I recently shot of the 2 Cisco ISR routers I received for the TestLAB and gave The Gimp another spin. Wow either I’m getting smarter or The Gimp is getting easier, most likely the latter…

Sodding books

 | 10 Jan 2006 22:34

Found out today that can’t deliver the last book I need either! Checked Ciscopress to no avail, they do list the book and it’s price but state:

This publication currently is not for sale

Right back to Amazon Marketplace then. Ordered it there this afternoon so will have to wait for it to arrive, which will probably in about 4 to 6 weeks time sigh. Still waiting for one of the books I ordered through Marketplace on the 13th of Dec. The other book I ordered there, different company/person, was waiting for me on my doormat when I can home from X-mas in the UK.

Update: Joy, oh what joy! Got an email back from the ppl I ordered the book from through Amazon Marketplace. They’re sorry but have run out of the book, they’ll remove the listing on Amazon (which apparently will take 2 to 3 weeks). Good thing is they’ll credit my creditcard.

Thanks to my father-in-law for the tip: Barnes& provided usefull eventhough their shiping & handling is extortionate. So get it from B&N if you need this book, no complaints at all…

Toys! (2851 & 877)

Extra power sockets...Yeeha, the first Cisco ISR routers have come in. I’ve now got a 2851 with HWIC-4ESW and a 877 to test. Let’s see how well these will do in my QoS tests…

The 1803 has arrived as well and a 878 has been ordered to test SDSL as well as ADSL (877).
