Thanks to Toby and his wonderful wife for helping me to get the number. Just to note, my GP number will be active as well.

Smoking is Good!

I started smoking at the age of 15. At first it was just to experiment and to impress girls, but later on I got hooked to it. It’s been a long time I’ve been smoking, and I still feel good about it.

Anyway, here are the top 5 reasons why smoking is good:

    5 It reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Tourette’s syndrome, as well as estrogen-dependent endometrial cancer
    4 It kills appetite, therefor you eat less (thus making you slimmer). You won’t find a supermodel who doesn’t smoke.
    3 It helps you to concentrate on complex tasks (such as programming and engineering)
    2 It reduces stress and anxiety dramatically

And the numero uno reason is:

    1 It makes you feel good! (didn’t you notice everyone smokes after having sex?)

Smoking is not only good for you, it’s good for your country’s economy as well… a lot of people earn their living by making and selling cigarettes, and the government earns a large revenue as well. So smoke as much as you can, forget what the doctors say. No matter what you’re going to die anyway!

CCNA Preparation

Since November 6th is the last day to sit for CCNA exam 640-801, I’ve decided to go for it. They are phasing out this syllabus and introduced 640-802 where they have added more complicated and junk issues.

I’ve started reading the CCNA Study Guide by Todd Lammle which has been lying on my shelf for quite some time. I hope I’ll be able to finish this 700-pages book within the next two weeks.

A friend of mine was nice enough to give me his spare Cisco 2501 router which I’m using to practice for the exam. Using a router is a much better choice than to use the simulators.

I’m hoping to sit for the exam by the end of this month and hopefully I’ll pass! Wish me luck, okay?

Certification Mania

This is an addition to my this 2007 resolution: I’m going to get at least three of the following certifications by December 31st:

My dream is to get the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) certification, which I should be bagging by 2010! :)

Insane Sleep Cycle

For the last one week or so, I’m going to bed at 6 in the morning and waking up at 4 in the evening. My usual of way of fixing my sleep cycle by keeping awake the whole day and then sleeping at night isn’t working. I tried Dormicum two nights and it isn’t working either.

It’s 4:34 in the morning right now and I’m awake. I’ve got an important work in the morning which I’m probably going to miss. Relaxen is my last hope.
