Tip No. 1 ...

Dramatically improve your spelling abilities or find a decent sub-editor.

If you don't your final product will be illegible - much like your initial post!

You can spellcheck - even typing in Braille !! ...

So don't go making light of a discernible lack of skill.

If you intend to enter a career where the majority of information is streamed to you, or will stream from you, by way of a keyboard and screen - THINKING that what you type is STILL understandable will get you absolutely nothing.

Also - IT Consultants tend to have a more authoritative email address than 'littlesecret1535'.

Just what did you do at twenty-five to four on that fateful day, anyway ???

You're asking for us to provide you with thousands of dollars worth of information for free?

by littlesecret1535 In reply to Hire a PRO......

It is not a job no one is really getting hired it is a class assignment, just checking to see if i was on the right track.

Hypothetical won't work here.... sorry...

This is a public forum available for anyone around the world to read. Any information posted here could then be used in a real world scenerio. Hence, people who earn their living doing that sort of thing would be cutting their own throat to provide the information for free.

If you have a class assignment of this nature, then submit your design and receive the grade it deserves. You'll know then, if you're on the right track. Either you pass or you fail.

I'm confused

by JPLconsultant In reply to help me design

First it sounds like you're saying this is a "mind challenge" but later you say it's a class assignment. So which is it?

Second, isn't asking us to do your homework for you cheating?

If you want help or guidance, then
A) Be clear and up front that it's a homework grade. Don't try to sneak one past us

B) Post it as a discussion, not a question. That may generate a lot more ideas.

C) Provide a much clearer description of the problem. You may think the Q is clear, but it's really NOT. That 3rd sentence is atrocious. I might suggest you skip networking, and go back to junior high grammar.

D) Provide us your current network design. That way, we can see what track you're on. I won't be willing to give you a design, but I may be willing to give you pointers or references. But I could only do that AFTER I see what you've got so far.

As noted, we all work hard for our knowledge. It's not OK for us to spoon-feed you your knowledge.

I'll venture a guess that most of us really are willing to help to some degree. It's all in how you present the information. If you're up front and clear, and do some effort to show that you're trying to do the work, then I think our perspective would be very different. I'll bet you'd be overwhelmed by the tips, suggestions, pointers and references you'd be given.

I'm more than willing to give pointers, tips, suggestions and other places to go for information [like reading material] to help someone out or to understand the basics, but I absolutely won't do someone elses work/project/ or homework.

Besides I've seen this question posted a couple of times over that past couple months. Virtually the same wording.
