Collection of useful, relevant or just fun places on the Internets for 27th August 2012 and a bit commentary about what I’ve found interesting about them:
Keeping Your Site Alive | Electronic Frontier Foundation – EFF provides some basic information about surviving a DDOS attack.
Salesforce losses swell, despite rise in sales • The Register – Salesforce.com is a poster child for the cloud as well. Or AaaS or whatever. It doesn’t make a profit. Like Amazon. Go the cloud.
The company said it expected earnings per diluted share of between $1.48 and $1.51 but on a diluted non-GAAP EPS – excluding certain costs – chief executive Marc Benioff’s company expects to come in in range of $0.31 to $0.32. Wall St’s money men had expected $0.34 a share.

My CCIE Story – Part 5 (The Aftermath) | Lame Journal – John Herbert has posted a five part story of his experience in working through CCIE program. He talks abut his experiences the before, during AND after. Enjoyed this thoroughly.
Finally, as someone once opined to me, there are two types of people who document their networks – the people who do it before they build it, and the people who do not do it. While I can’t guarantee that diagramming your network and working from that will result in a cleaner, more sane environment than building configs in your head and then documenting the result, based on my roughly 12 years of doing this, I’ll put money on it.
End-of-Sale and End-of-Life Announcement for the Cisco 6500, 6100, and 6300 Series Line Cards and PoE Daughter Cards for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Products [Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches] – Cisco Systems – Still five more years of the supporting the 61xx, 63xx and 65xx modules in the Cat6500.
