Hello! I’m Carl. I work for a small, consulting company that focuses on advanced data center design, most often with Cisco gear.   I am a CCIE in Routing and Switching, as well as Service Provider (37652). Hopefully I’ll be adding CCIE Data Center to that list one of these days.

I get to play with brand new stuff all the time and do my best to stay on top of it, this blog is a place for me to rant and rave and write stuff down so I don’t forget things, and hopefully to help other people out too.

Let me know if there is something you’d like me to write about or just want to yell at me! You can ping me on here, or follow me on Twitter @carl_niger.



I work for a Cisco centric VAR, and I tend to like Cisco pretty well. That being said, everything on this blog is my own personal opinion and does not reflect the opinions of my employer or any vendors. I reserve the right to be totally wrong as often as I damn well please, although I will try not to be wrong too often.

  1. Hi Carl,

    I saw your video on ACI Power Deployment.
    Good demo!
    Are you running the APIC sim on your MAC as well?
    Or do you use a dedicated UCS for this?



    • Christ. This post was fabulous and thought-provoking, and the comments are equally as good! I think the distinction between enjoying the fruits of your feminine wiles and being objectified really come down to how you’d feel if you no longer got that attention, or had to cover up. In a world where every blemish is dissected, every tummy is judged and teenagers marry adult actors long past their prime, it’s easy to see why we keep objectifying ourselves (and each other), but it’s time to stop. Now the hard part is actually doing it.
