I just wanted to voice my appreciation of your diagrams in the Networking section. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and your diagrams are very helpfull at bringing across the concept being shown and more importantly, they stay in the mind for later recolection.
What software do you use to create them ?
It would be a great help for me to use that format for my own study material when trying to remember my notes more easily.

Iasked Chris once and he said he did them in Visio using the Cisco templates which apparently are available on the Cisco website. However I've dug around on their website a few times and failed to find anything I can sucessfully load into my copy of Visio. Anyone know where they are?
[ Doing it this way must have taken absolutely ages to get those diagrams done in the networking section unless your some sort of Visio Guru ]
I found out that Cisco like Visio... a lot!
They have all sorts of product stencils freeware on their site right down to the extent that you have a stencil for a networking device and on the icon is a bank of connectors (representing say switch connections) which you can attach cable connectors to and lead off to other devices like PCs, router connectors etc. It doesn't do validation but is just for pictorial purposes but it's still impressive if it works like that.
and you can see they have gone to town on Visio as a network diagram tool.
