Skillset has tests you can take all day long for CCNA. so if you wanting something that you can focus on a specific area in ccna exam then the site is great. Mostly everything else on there has to do with InfoSec but still great site.

Hi Everyone,

 should i watch Bleach? I watched the first three seasons a few years ago but not sure why i lost interest, i remember Ichigo stopping the ultimate killing\execution machine with ease and thinking I would have liked that to have been a bigger fight... What do you think? yes or no?

Hi Everyone,

 I'm trying to learn IPv4 and part of the study materials has the question-
what is the valid host range for network 1.4.0.0/15?

I think the answer is 1.4.0.1 - 1.5.255.254 (with 255 being the broadcast address.

my thinking is /15 is stealing 7 bits from the second octet which gives a block size of 2, so the next subnet in the range would be 1.6.0.1/15.  the first address in the range is always one higher than the subnet starting in the last octet so that would give me a starting point of 1.4.0.1 and the last address is the next subnet -2 which would be 1.5.255.254..

if i'm wrong would someone help point me in the right direction please...

Thanks a lot for your help :)

I've just sat my 70-410 exam, and my god is powershell important to know, to the point where adding users to groups you're only given powershell commands as options!! who uses powershell to add users to groups when you've got access to a nice clean useful GUI to use?!?!

Hi everyone,

 I'm just trying to get my head around Server 2012 r2 backup, no matter what i try I can only ever see the last backup taken, if i want to get back a file deleted a week ago i'd need to restore from previous versions but that's far from a good solution, am i doing something wrong or do i need a third party solution like backup exec??

BTW this is just a test\demo domain not live in any way...

Looking for a good picture viewer for Ubuntu 14.10, I'm switching from Windows so I'm looking for something like Windows media player where you can just drag a folder of pictures into it and view it as a slideshow so i can have that playing on one monitor while i'm working on the other..

please note: Linux noobie, please speak slowly and assume i don't know what you're talking about... :D

Don't go on a weekend, I've been queuing to get out of the carpark for almost an hour, it's a bloody joke...

Just walk away, I bought a 206 from there, engine didn't start when I collected the car as the battery had failed, took a week to get a new one (they fitted a second hand one to get me mobile), within the first week the EGR valve on the engine failed then a few days later the anti-roll bar broke and jammed the front nearside wheel... And I'm still waiting for the fuel cap cover that's been on order for three weeks...

The all you can eat nights are amazing value... even if you don't eat meat, just tell them when you get there and you are able to pick your meal from the normal menu...
