Question by M.A: What resource would you recommend for learning about networks?
I know the basics about networks. I know how things work, what the hardware is, how packets are sent, I know almost everything about TCP/IP. But I don’t think that’s enough.
I want to learn everything there is about networks. I’m the guy whom everyone comes to when they have a network problem at work (since we don’t have a network admin). I want to learn how to get into my co-workers computers from the LAN, I want to be able to track down hackers who try to bring down our website, I want to learn to be a network genius (like that guy in swordfish, I know it’s fictional, but that’s how good I want to be).
I’d like to purchase a book to learn these, but I don’t know what to buy. I need a book which speaks in simple terms, books which use big words and talk adultish bore me and I end up throwing it on the bookshelf and never reading it again.
So I always go after books which talk in a simple language and uses pictures to convey its points. The pictures also help me a lot, I actually learn a lot more from pictures than I’d learn from the text, weird, I know.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Well to start, head off to a Chapters (or other book store) and pick up a book on the certification Network+. Skim through the book. If anything at all looks new to you in it, either sit down in a chair and read it or buy the thing and read it at home. Okay, I guess you could go to a library too. Network+ is a foundational network cert. If you’re good with networking, it shouldn’t be anything new.
Next you come to a crossroads. The guy in Swordfish was a programmer, not a network guy. If you want to learn programming I can’t help you.
If you want to do things like “track down hackers”, that’s simple. You collect IP addresses of the source of the attack and then open a case with the FBI. They will take the IP address to a judge, get a subpoena for their ISP, and get an address.
To be a network genius, your next stop is to get material for the CCNA test. To be one with networking you must know how Cisco products (which run 8-95% of any network market) work. This starts with a CCNA, and progresses to a CCNP, and finally (for a select few) a CCIE. There is also a security branch, if you are interested. You can find more information on these off of Cisco’s website.

Ufopolitics Mankind Biggest Mistake Between 1910 and 1917 all of humanity was offered the fortunate opportunity to progress into a new world & civilization, unlimited by the use and cost of energy, a world of technology powered by abundant, clean & totally free energy. It was to have been a great leap forward in the sociological evolution of humanity, together, in a shared perspective of liberation from the constraints of limited resources, into a much wider view of possibility & capability. The energy renaissance had open its eyes, and begun to breath with such a vast scope of potential. Not only in the scope of it’s technological application, but also in it’s spiritual foundation; humankind was about, on the crest and verge of discovering it’s own true link to the universal systems of energy and what those energies could encompass …. we .. teetered on the brink and as an entire race, we must have held our breath, momentarily … because the key, to the answer, had arrived, and it was working …. it was bubbling beneath the confines of our awareness and looking into the infinite … in it’s way, it was proving and proof of the very existance of God, the universal, all one and I am. BUT … in 1917 The Wardenclyffe Tower was …

This teacher verbally abuses and bullies students. Due to a personal relationship with the principal, she got away with it for a very long time. In this video, you will see Ms. King, Ms. Szymberki’s full time aid named in the student letter previously posted, assist Ms. Szymberski in entering the building undetected by offices staff. This demonstrates the insular culture around Ms. Szymberski that she celebrates. Meanwhile, it remains the expectation that all other staff report to work on time. Given this demonstration that all adults, charged with the care of our students in that room, are all more than willing to cover for each other, it is understandable how these abuses could go undetected and unreported for so long. As the only other witnessing adult in a position to do something about it, instead chose to either (allegedly), at times, participate in the abuse or remain silent about it, these many affected students had NO ONE to advocate on their behalf. Until me. As always, I again took it upon myself to make a copy of the falsified sign in sheet of the corresponding day that was, as always, approved by Rick Guerra, School Leader. I followed the chain of command and informed the Regional District Manager, Javier Garibay, and Diane Griggs of The Leona Group Human Resources. They, in turn, suspended me, investigated me, confronted me with numerous false “findings” regarding my professional performance and instructed me to keep quiet or I would be fired. I did not keep …

Kurt Nimmo www.infowars.com www.prisonplanet.tv October 14, 2011 On September 22, 2011, HR 3011 was introduced in the House. It is entitled the “Transportation Security Administration Authorization Act of 2011″ and it contains some curious language. Two thirds of the way through the ponderous bill, in Sec. 295, we find the following: Whoever, except with the written permission of the Assistant Secretary for Transportation Security (or the Director of the Federal Air Marshal Service for issues involving the Federal Air Marshal Service), knowingly uses the words ‘Transportation Security Administration’, ‘United States Transportation Security Administration’, ‘Federal Air Marshal Service’, ‘United States Federal Air Marshal Service’, ‘Federal Air Marshals’, the initials ‘TSA’, ‘FAMS’, ‘FAM’, or any colorable imitation of such words or initials, or the likeness of a Transportation Security Administration or Federal Air Marshal Service badge, logo, or insignia on any item of apparel, in connection with any advertisement, circular, book, pamphlet, software, or other publication, or with any play, motion picture, broadcast, telecast, or other production, in a matter that is reasonably calculated to convey the impression that the wearer of the item of apparel is acting pursuant to the legal authority of the Transportation Security Administration or Federal Air Marshal Service, or to convey the impression that such advertisement, circular, book, pamphlet, software, or other …

The is an idea for a website, aCenturyToday.org, that will aim to inspire long-term thinking, imagination, innovation and hope (from an early age) by allowing people to send a message or messages that are stored and then displayed 100 years to the second after they click send (a bit like a blog with a 100 year delay). Sending a message or messages will give the sender a connection with the long distant future and so encourage them to think about the effects of their actions today and act in ways to ensure a better long term future. Sending a message would be free and all messages sent would be completely private – the next person to read your message would be reading it in the 22nd century! And the next person to read their messages would be in the 23rd century etc etc! Users could also publish on the site (today) what they think life will be like a century from now and they could also design a message back (what would they say to us?). The site will also have many educational features to encourage participation by schools and colleges, such as lesson plans and other teaching resources. These resources will including photos, video, handouts etc. to illustrate what life was like around a century ago, which could be contrasted with today to help imagine what changes, inventions, innovations etc. may occur by a century today. The site will also include information on sustainability and looking after the environment to encourage everyone to ACT now to look after the planet to …

For Those who Love Money: It’s not Real, it is an Illusion that keeps you fighting to obtain more, it enslaves your mind, and keeps you from experience life to it’s fullest. Money is destroying our Future, destroying our evolution, holding us from our true potential as a Race. Look around you, the world is filled with beauty, filled with wonder, excitement and new discoveries. If we are ever to be at peace, and live happy, we must free ourselves from the shackles of our old Beliefs our own addictions and habits. We must free our selves of the Illusion that keeps driving us down more pain and suffering. We must choose to Share this world with our Brothers and Sisters, to give each other opportunities to expand as human beings. We must choose to share our resources, our tools, our knowledge, our food/water, our inventions, our wisdom and our Ideas. We must choose to create a NEW System of Automating our lives. A System that supports everyone’s well being, the planet and the ecosystem.
