Multicast is a new domain for me as in the past I’ve never configured any real network for multicast scenario. Few weeks ago a colleague asked me about configuring multicast and I can only guessing what was the right thing to do.
I took the opportunity to study Multicast 3 weeks ago using IEWB version 5 Multicast and stuck for 16-hour for the first 5 tasks knowing that the workbook is not actually ready yet. After I forwarded my complain at 1am in the morning, INE replied that the new updates will be coming soon. Well, what can I do? I looked at the old version of Multicast workbook (version 4.10) and did the whole lot.
Apparently, my understanding to Multicast is improving. Doing the workbook, watching the CODs for the last 3 weeks makes me knowing what should be done to accomplish different scenario. I still need to dig more about MSDP, SSM, MLD, and other weird scenario presented on version 5 and I really look forward but at least I’m moving forward.
Previously, questions kept popping up whether I’m making progress or just going nowhere. Felt like in a deep pit and get frustrated feeling that this thing was just too hard and wasn’t making any progress. Apparently, through this Multicast part, I regained my confidence and actually making progress. Slow, but progressing.
I’m expecting to sit for the Written test this year. I’ll try my best!
Closing to December, projects are just keep coming and coming. Some of the big projects are due on December. Not to mention urgent requests to action few stuff that keep coming every week. It’s really fun knowing that I work better under pressure.
I tried to start early and finish early then cranking up study for at least 3 hours a day and as I got every Friday for study leave, now I can have 12-hour lab on Friday and Saturday to catch up my lab sessions. It feels really funny after doing those 2 days 12-hour lab. That’s why Sunday can be good a good day to start new project. Putting a new lawn!
Badminton was also part the Sunday project if schedule permit. Last Sunday felt really great after not playing Badminton for about 20 years. Well, at some point I can felt the relieves and also sore muscles for the next 4 days.
Anyway, now I know my limit and need to have a good break. After all, exercise always good to keep the blood flowing.
