Don't you mean Happy Christmas. I hate the PC nonsense in America these days. The Muslim extremists are right in one way- The US has become a Godless nation i.e. the Great Satan. Dave, London

I wish someone would leave a pile of cisco icons under my tree :(

Happy Christmas y'all.

@Dave: Seeing as I'm atheist, you're lucky to get a tree.

@Stretch: When I was on active duty during the Gulf War, My first shirt would say that there are no "atheist" in the fox hole, becuase when the bullets are flying, you're going to be praying to someone.

@rstaples: I'm sorry you didn't have a more competent first sergeant.

Also, I'm a civilian contractor.

Merry CHRISTmas... To all and to all a good night. By the way I did get some Cisco Hardware for CHRISTmas this year. Yeah 4 me. Now if I only knew what to do with them!

This has to be my favorite Cisco web site to date!

Jens, very nice! I like the one comment (#23) pointing out that switch #2, #4, and #7 are single points of failure. :)

I hope everyone enjoys the holidays no matter what you believe in or how you celebrate!

Merry Christmas Stretch! Man you must be a true genius. How could you possibly possess the plethora of knowledge at such a youthful age? Great website and a very logical, observant, and keen eye.
