I’m a little behind in my study at the moment. My schedule at work has picked up a bit, but the bigger scheduling challenge has been the preparations for our first born. With our daughter only a few weeks away, we’ve been feverishly trying to get things done before her arrival. To that end, my study has been at a relative standstill for the last week. I did begin to review the switching content, but I have not progressed very far into the chapter this week.

My initial review of switching did bring a question to mind. Those of you out there working in various industries, do you really still see a lot of hub use? I ask because I noticed it’s still in the content. I’m not saying that it shouldn’t be mind you. I’m just curious to see how many of you are still working with them. I haven’t personally used one in probably close to 10 years.

That said, it’s still important to understand bridges, hubs, and switches and everything that goes with them. I’ll have more thoughts on switching next week. I'm going to try and shorten my "relaxation window" at night after work to add a little bit more time to my studying. We'll see how it goes.
