Back from cracked camp.

Just a quick apology to those I’ve been slow to get back to or had to turn away over the last couple of weeks.
I’m finally back to being able to use 2 hands for typing now so should be getting back into the swing of things!

Please feel free to email me at and I’ll be going through some of the older emails as quick as I can.

For those who weren’t aware, I’ve been down and out for the last 2 months due to a particularly nasty broken arm, caused by a lack of vitamin D (the one you get from sunlight, doh!).

I hear rumor that some new products will be announced tomorrow morning along with some new revisions to the RB2011 (not yet released).

Attended the load-balancing workshop this morning which both confirmed my ideas about how PCC should be used but also went into detail on a few new concepts such as, using the MPLS Traffic Engineering features for bandwidth based load balancing over multiple links. As usual these slides + video will be available on when the MikroTik guys get back home.
