I haven't updated for a few days, as I have been dealing with a broken water pipe that ruined the carpet in my spare room. Anyway, that is sorted out as far as I can until everything dries out. The weather has not been too helpful. You can see the wet concrete after I pulled up the carpet and underlay in the image below.
On Tuesday, I passed the CCNP ROUTE exam. I didn't do as well as I'd hoped, and I put part of that down to dealing with these other extraneous issues the day before and not being in a great fram of mind. But 848/1000 (pass mark 790) is a pass. Now I just need to pass CCNP SWITCH and TSHOOT exams to obtain my CCNP.
