"Ha ha ha ha ha". Sorry - but I have come across CCIEs that do *not*
understand basic LAN / WAN issues, BGP ("that's like RIP/OSPF isn't it ?")
and a whole range of similar stuff. I know that people always slip through,
but please don't equate CCIE with 'independent' qualifications. (Independent
as in vendor neutral, and to some extent technology neutral).
