I would like to start off with a big thanks to my friend Scott Empson for involving me with this project. Your Portable Command Guide series was a great idea and kudos to you for making it happen.

Thanks to the team at Cisco Press. Thank you Mary Beth for believing in me and to Drew and Mandie for making sure I got things done right and on time. Also thanks to my friend Jim for keeping me in check.

Special thanks to my Cisco Networking Academy family. A big thanks to Jeremy and Rob for involving me in these very cool projects. You guys keep me young.

Finally, a great big thanks to the folks at Cambrian College for letting me have fun and do what I love to do...teach!
