What to do next?

Bottom line, I'm torn. I know I have a lot to learn in a number of areas, but I'm not sure where to go next.

Do I go for a CCSP or CCVP? Or straight to the CCIE written in voice or security?
I'm a little reluctant to work on a second CCIE because I'd like to reap some of the benefits of the first one before working on the next.

My weaknesses in Security have shown over the past few weeks when I've missed little things here and there.

And then there's other non-Cisco options such as CISSP or Ethical Hacker. This summer I'm finishing a Master's in Computer Science, so I just don't think those two certs would matter much with a Master's and a CCIE.

Then there's always the thought of going for an MBA or a PhD in Computer Science. Neither seem too appealing to me at this time.

April Fools RFC

I look forward to these every year.

RFC 5241 - Naming Rights in IETF Protocols
RFC 5242 - A Generalized Unified Character Code: Western European and CJK Sections

I've also added a couple of my all-time favories to the list of links to the right.
