A desire for constant learning is one of the hallmarks of a good engineer.

Russ(4:15:35 PM): useful link: writing EEM scripts: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/netmgmt/configuration/guide/nm_eem_policy_cli.html
Biff(4:17:15 PM): my scripting ambitions were back when i was hungry to learn and not forced to drink from a fire hose on a daily basis.
Russ(4:17:46 PM): yeah, my curiosity has become highly selective in recent years
Russ(4:18:57 PM): I’m interested in learning (in no particular order): Japanese, Latin, how to play the guitar, how to do card tricks
Russ(4:19:07 PM): notice that VOIP is nowhere on that list
Biff(4:19:50 PM): lol. can you already juggle?
Russ(4:20:05 PM): not interested
Russ(4:20:12 PM): so, no
Biff(4:20:48 PM): juggling is supposed to be one of those awesome brain exercises
Russ(4:21:42 PM): that would go a loooong way towards explaining why I can’t do it

I never ever said I was a good engineer.*


* But, I am.
