So, the Cisco thing blew over. Yes, they included Ethereal, but if you asked them, you'd get a CD with the sources. No problems as far as I can see. A friend of mine who's a journalist has asked around (Cisco, FSF) and all seems to be alright. Anyway, this happened a loooonnnnggg time ago ;-)
Anyway, a lot has happened at the company I work for, some good, some bad.
Last week I've been on a Cisco course (the irony), ICND (Interconnecting Cisco network devices?), to become CCNA. Weee!
