Genuineness Is Key To Succeeding In San Jose IT Market, Says Expert

CBS San Francisco

The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows San Jose management jobs average nearly $75 an hour, much higher than the national average. While several management positions remain open locally, it will take an extra effort from applicants to get that new position or promotion.

FC Security for CCIE DC – FC Port Security

Mind Safe

Fibre Channel port security prevents unauthorized Fibre Channel devices and switches from logging into the fabric. This protects the fabric from accidents, malicious intent or attacks such as WWN identity spoofing. It’s configured on a per-VSAN basis.  

Everything covered here can be found in this configuration guide:

You have a few options to choose from when configuring Port Security:

1. Configure with auto-learning and CFS distribution
2. Configure with auto-learning without CFS distribution
3. Configure with manual database

The first method is definitely most practical, as you can configure once, learn the current environment, and use Cisco Fabric Services (CFS) to distribute throughout the fabric. I’ll be following this method in this blog post, feel free to follow along.  Also added a quick template at the bottom.

Crypto Currently: Prices for Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Pandacoin

The Cryptosphere

pandapandapandapanda pandapandapandapanda

Well, thank god THAT’s over. It’s hard to say that stable cryptocurrency prices are sanity or not, but whatever it is, we has it. At least compared to yesterday.

To celebrate the return of (in)sanity to the markets, we’re featuring the adorably-named Pandacoin. Predictably, their marketing materials are equally adorbs.

The legend says that two baby Panda offspring shall come forth and combine their ectoplasm and add a touch of soy sauce to create an omnipotent all knowing coin« .

Riiiight. I don’t know if it’s all-knowing (wouldn’t it have gotten out of itself before yesterday?) but it’s philosophically grounded, and we all know that just mints money, right?
