About five months ago, I decided to for my CCNA. And I decided to use to train for it. Preplogic has a fantastic program for networking wannabes (and networking already bes). For those of you only interested in the technology side of things, the CCNA is a decently high level certification from Cisco: Cisco Certified Networking Associate.

Code name "Midori"

Prior to uninstall tork, I reconfigured Konqueror for use without tor.
