Now that the transition to the new site has been (more or less) completed, I wanted to catch up on some brief announcements.
Cheat Sheet Template
The Visio template I use for creating cheat sheets has been posted in the library. I'm going to start accepting submissions to the "official" collection; only original, accurate, and professional submissions will be accepted. I've added a forum for cheat sheet development.
Of course, you are free to publish sheets created from the template on your own, so long as any references to Packet Life (e.g. the site's address at top right) are removed first.
Wiki and Blog
I've started migrating all my old CCNP and CCIE notes over to the wiki. This will take a while, but I'm making fairly steady progress. In the meantime, everyone is welcome to contribute their own content! Some ideas include:
- Certification study plans
- Hardware summaries and comparisons
- Vendor overviews (no spam)
Members are welcome to contribute their own blog posts now too.
I've begun planning for a free remote lab for site members. The goal is to produce a modern, multi-vendor collection of gear at the CCIE level, free for community use. This will take a good amount of work, but I think we can make it happen.
I'll discuss my plans (including potential hardware donations) in more detail in a future post, but for now I wanted to get the word out that I'm looking for discounted or donated rack space in Northern Virginia, preferably around Dulles Airport (IAD) or Fairfax County. Bandwidth consumption will be low, but I would like to secure at least half a rack of space (floor space is fine too). If you or your company might be interested in sponsoring rack space, please shoot me an email at stretch at packetlife dot net.
