Good sessions today.  Class on high performance computing that had little relevance to my life today, but was incredible to sit through, nonetheless. Outstanding information about the challenges of grid computing, etc.

Another class on PCI compliance (a payment card industry standard), was highly relevant to my day-to-day job, and well worth the time.

The closer on managing QoS was a little bit of a disappointment, but still not bad.  I didn’t learn much I didn’t already know, but was exposed to some Cisco GUI tools that I was not previously aware of.

I’m burnt.  I’m tired.  My brain is full after 4 days of this.  I have pages and pages of notes.  I will have to go back through it all and try to make some sense out of it.  So much good information.  Networkers was well worth it.  If you are a Cisco geek, Networkers is Mecca.  You need to make it to the show at least once in your career.  I don’t know if I’ll ever have the opportunity to attend again, but it was really, really great.  At the same time, I’m ready to go home.  Not looking forward to being on a plane all day tomorrow.  Blech…but it must be done.
