Almost nobody was in the office today. It was eerily quiet. I replied to emails and did some research. I got some studying done. I really feel like I have the time to prepare for the CCIE exam and pass it. I have exposure to the variety of technologies and real life implementations for the first time in my career that span the breadth of what's on the test. I passed the written portion about 10 years ago and never took the lab. I'm not sure I would have passed the lab.
