What should you expect to see on this Blog?
This blog started just for my own sake of being organized and keep all my toolbox in just one place. When I started working on my blog it was also to keep track of my studies while going for my CCIE Collaboration.
Now the idea has changed a bit and you will be seeing content from different technologies as I work with them and have the time to enter and explain the solutions.
