October 22nd, 2010 No comments

Jeremy Cioara has,  for many years, encouraged countless hundreds of thousands of would-be Cisco engineers through his skillful training and fabulous Cisco expertise.

Thank you LATIS, and Lithuania

March 19th, 2010 No comments


I have just spent a wonderful few days in Lithuania, in the beautiful capital city of Vilnius, conducting a three-day training course in data communications. I was delivering the course on behalf of a training company here in the UK. The pace of the course was a little too fast, because there was a lot of material to cover.  In my opinion,  too much to explain in just three days.

I would have preferred to have designed my own course,  so I tried to include some cool and useful technical tips and knowledge – at least enough for keen students to research further.  If any student wishes to contact me, they can CLICK HERE and I will receive any question and then provide any help needed.  No fee – just friendly advice.

latislogoI would like to thank LATIS, the Lithuanian security technology engineers union, for their warm, kind hospitality.  My personal thanks to Pranis, Aurika, Rimuntas and Gaudenis. I hope to visit you again some day.
