I would like to thank all those who have helped me on my journey.

My wife Myriam and my sons Peter (15) and Matteo (11), who have been patient with me over the past few months, and very understanding when Saturdays, Sundays and may other evenings, have been sacrificed to lab practice.  It was great to be able to go for a long walk in the countryside this Monday holiday morning.

Paul, who started his CCIE journey at about the same time as I did, but arrived almost two years before me, and encouraged me throughout mine.  The proprietors of the New Delhi Restaurant, Gasperich, for regularly allocating us a 4-seat table so I could spread my NMC lab notes out to discuss over dinner.

The many many helpful people on Cisco NetPro who are so willing and eager to share their experience.  Too many to mention, but especially Rick Burts, Russ White, François Tallet, Marikakis, Jon Marshall, and many many others.

The staff at NetMasterClass for their excellent training material, and especially to Alexei for answering my incessant questions on their DISCUSSiT forum.

Last but not least, the bloggers.  Ethan Banks, whose blog is an inspiration.  Richard Bannister, whose excellent diagrams provided the reading for my train journey to Diegem.  PacketLife, CCIE Journey, and all the others that are listed in my blogroll.

Thank you all.

  8. […] Kevin Dorrell passed his lab over a month ago now, so I’m a little slow on reporting his success.  Still, late love is better than no love, so surf on over and congratulate him on a job well done. […]
