Miscellaneous news

A few quick announcements today...

First, the Packet Life RSS feed is now available on the Amazon Kindle for $0.99/mo. (This price is set by Amazon. If it were up to me it'd be free.)

Second, I've established an informal IRC channel for the site on the Freenode IRC network. Connect to irc.freenode.net and join #packetlife if interested. This is an experiment, to determine whether it generates useful discussion or simply a barrage of requests for braindumps. We'll see.

Finally, for those who haven't heard, I've been busy working on a new revision of the site. This next incantation aims to shift focus from my own work to forming a collaborative community. So far, I have in mind a community blog, wiki, forum, chat, and some resources already available on the site. I am open to suggestions and ideas for other things to throw in. I hope to have a functional beta of the site out in a couple months.

Hi Jeremy, I think your site is one of the best blogs about Cisco related articles, and also usefull for beginners. I'm spreading link to friends and colleagues.
But to the ideas... What about make your blog articles to be easily downloadable and printable? Linek your "papers" (IOS hints, and others...). It's a pitty that little icon is missing on blog posts.

I'd enjoy helping you with the site. I have extensive joomla site development experience that would benefit it greatly. If you would like the help, please let me know.

I've stumbled across your site looking for BCMSN braindumps (got any? no? okay, moving along... ;)

Must say I'm enjoying what I've found here so far, and will be tuning in, and will also be spreading links out there as well. Keep up the good work, mate.
