So if I shoot for A+, N+ and S+ you would figure that would be a good groundwork to get past the HR wall of death and have a potential interview? I have practical experience but no certs and I'm not landing anything. Would the certs really help that much?

Depending on your experience, yes. If you have like 3 or 4+ in a support role then not so much but it won't hurt.

If you have <2, which I did when I got my A+/N+ then your callback rate on jobs will increase tremendously. IT firms love that bullshit. I can't speak on the S+ but the OP already addresses it.

Is it better to just take the ICND1 then the 2nd exam later just to have the Entry-level network tech cert in the meantime? It seems like a good option and something to throw on the resume while you finish up for the full ccna.

I see CCNA poo poo on like every generic Network Tech/Engineer I position ever listed and on a lot of tiny sysadmin jobs so I think it would help a lot if you can get motivated enough to do it.

I think CBT Nuggets varies depending on who actually presents the material. That said, tech videos tend to be very boring anyway.


Also, can anyone recommend me books to learn Apache/MySQL optimizing? I'm working with a magento webhost now and while I have setup LAMP before I would like to know more tips and tricks if you will.

The A+ guides linked in the OP tell you pretty much what you need. There isn't much about port numbers on the A+ beyond common stuff like FTP, IIRC.

Though the Network+ has a bunch more. Mostly about cable types.

Ah, ok on the DBs. Maybe I don't give a poo poo then since I am supporting a known web framework/app and its not like I can change customer's website for them (we don't develop the sites, we only support the hardware as a webhost).

Still probably a good book to check out.

I want each article of clothing I wear to have an IP address.

Lets say every person on earth has 100 pieces of clothing (no way is this correct)

672 billion addresses. That's 1.62*10^-24th percent of the total number of internet allocated addresses.

Sweet, I'm going to have a different version of Java on each item, as well.

Yah I'm reading the Todd lammle book and all the classful poo poo is obnoxious because they will have a network diagram using a faithful classful architecture but everything is actually in CIDR.

Once you understand the binary portion of subnetting its pretty easy.

/18 derp derp

11111111.11111111.11000000.00000000

Oh look 18 1s!

OR

255.255.192.0

EDIT:

So block size is 64, so first subnet , say with 10.10.0.0 is -

10.10.0.0 -> 10.10.63.255 is the first ip range .

And the # of subnets it the masked bit count so 2**2 == 4.

Packet Tracer does eventually time out, but it takes like 2 minutes or something ridiculous.
