Sometimes that's the best way to learn .. when you have accidentally
messed up configs on a router that's halfway across town once, have to
drive over and fix the resulting mess, you learn quite fast not to
repeat that mistake again :)

If this guy was anywhere in the asiapac region I'd just have asked him
to attend the workshops and tutorials at SANOG or APRICOT - there are
a lot more teaching in those two events than you see in NANOG
