RE: Automated DLR conflict detection

If I had to choose someone to work with, I'd take someone with tons of
experience and especially a Cisco degree over a MS-style degree (Not
just because it is Microsoft).

Most MCSE classes and material (books) teach you how to pass the MCSE,
not how to do well in the real world (Sort of like the SATs).

In my Cisco classes, I learned a lot about routers and networking as
whole, even more than I knew prior.  Real world applications, like
recovering from a lost enable password (You would not believe how many
people configure a router then "forget" the enable password) are taught.

Plus, once you learn one thing, it is very easy to port skills to
something else.  Like I can figure out most programs (especially GUIs),
since they are all pretty similar to each other.

Unlike MS-Something certification, CCIE certification is tough enough
and practical enough that the annointed ones are often proven to be
in any situation. Although I am an old *nix/Linux routing nutcase, I
with a young sponge that just got his CCIE and I am impressed with the
foundation he has and his ability to apply it to a wide variety of
equipment and scenerios. 

Should you find yourself driving around Chattanooga in a "stealth
backhoe", even at 3am... beware of the rednecks living next door
to the fiber. :)
