Gotta get back on the horse

Work has been pretty busy lately so I haven't had any time at all to study. I'm less than a month out now so I have to get going. This weekend is already taken, so I need to get started again by Monday.

Snow Crash Complete

Interesting book. It was a quick read, kind of a cross between William Gibson, Dan Brown, and Michael Crichton. The ending was kind of weak (like many of Crichton's), but the rest held my attention. I'm also trying to ignore a morally offensive chapter near the end. I am really interested in picking up Crytonomicon next, once I get the SP lab out of the way.

Time to get back to studying and away from the book reviews. I'm planning on spending the rest of July experimenting with Inter-AS VPN, CSC, and Multicast to see what kind of trouble I can get myself into. After that I'll probably knock out the last 3 IPX labs and repeat a couple more INE labs before my 3rd (and hopefully final!) attempt.
