However, I spilled spaghetti sauce or something else on it & finally had to
get rid of it a year
or two later. :/ I'm glad to hear they still give T-shirts to folk that
achieve the Sage status.
The client I used back then to do the various IPv6 tasks to achieve the
Sage cert was buggy as hell
(I'm sure there are much better ones around now) and often crashed. I agree
about HE's
training materials, they are very informative.
