Bob (Amenditman), do you remember what I'm talking about here?

 

Are you trying to say that I am in the same age bracket as you are? I'm shocked and offended! :hysterical:

 

That picture, where did you get it. I thought I had destroyed all copies in existence. MOM!

We US kids were not as inventive as the British or Irish.

 

"We US kids were not as warlike as the British or Irish." The object of the contest is to smash the opponents conker to bits and eventually all the conkers of the local players. Thereby becoming the conquering king for the season. :pirate:

That's funny. It reminded me of a toy in the U.S. back in the 60s that was banned at my school, too. They were called "knockers". There were two hardened plastic, colorful balls suspeded from two equal length strings and tied to a ring that you put on your finger. You were supposed to move your hand rapidly up and down and the balls would bounce of one another at the top and bottom of their rotations.

Banned? I had those when I was a kid back in the 80s. Yeah, I know... I am a young whippersnapper compared to you old fogies :hysterical: B)

Banned at my school, I said. It was a Catholic school. No one is allowed to have fun in a Catholic school. I think it's a sin of some sort. ;)

knockers? i remember those from somewhere... what was her name?

 

as to clackers, i too think they were banned because most were too uncoordinated to prevent one from clackerizing one's self, with the summary trip to the clinic...

Ah, I took that as meaning that they were banned from being sold B)

Around the world, there are a number of professions in high demand from the pool of 200 million international migrants.

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21938085

 

 

 

 

IT database and network professionals

 

Those professionals work on the design, development and support of databases, networks and operating systems.

 

 

There is a special need for IT professionals at the Skolkovo Innovation Center, a high technology business area near Moscow. Professionals hired by companies in Skolkovo face fewer requirements to enter the country.

 

IT database and network professionals are among the most wanted professionals in the world. What about you?

 

 

 

 

 

Become a specialist migrant. Get the job in Skolkovo an you could double your pay by being a spy for the CIshhhhhhhhhhh or Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. :zorro:

Well, I'm committed now. I've used my voucher and scheduled my ICND2 examination for Tuesday the 30th of April 2013 @ 1400hrs. I'm nowhere near ready for this exam, but I surely hope to be by the 30th. :yes:

I was intrigued by the phrase " fruitful studying " so I googled it and found these pearls of wisdom which may help you in your task Eric.

 

Organisation is the key

Ahh... motivation. It's a wonderful thing. This one would still probably work best on me, though...

 

KEEP STUDYING!

I was scheduled, along w/ my other classmate who also passed the first exam, to take ICND2 on the 30th of April. However, due to the fact that neither of us has had our noses to the grindstone much at all this past few weeks of joyous and beautiful Springtime here in Florida, we are not sufficiently prepared to take the examination.

 

We are both rescheduling for the end of May, probably the 28th for me. So, beat me, whip me, badger away. You'll have a whole 'nother month to nag now.

 

Thanks, folks! :)

 

We'll get 'er done. Don't worry. :yes:
