MCTS: Windows 7 Configuration 70-680 passed

Sat for my MCTS: Windows 7 Configuration 70-680 today. Passed.

Now to order more books and continue this study/exam journey I have started. I hope Microsoft extend the 2nd chance offer when it ends in June. Soon see.

I won’t be doing another exam until I have the next set of books to read. Plan on ordering the books this week, so I won’t have them for about 3 weeks. So get to have a break, although I may do some reading from online resources (or via pdf’s until they show up).

Very busy

Sorry about the lack of posts. But I’ve been very¬† busy in recent months.

Between work and other stuff, not had much spare time. Currently finishing up a month long preparation for another Microsoft exam. I’ve been reading my 2nd book I purchased which was Windows 7 Configuration (70-680) which I booked the exam for the day after I completed my Vista Configuration exam.

Tomorrow is the big day to complete the next exam. If I can pass this one of the first go, then I’ll be ordering more books. Plan on doing MCITP: Server Administrator (2008) exams/certs. I’ve also been told I should probably grab an MCITP for Windows 7, which means I will probably end up doing 70-686 once the material is available later in the year, although I have found some online resources to work from in the meantime.

Will be sure to post back my progress soon.

Nitro Revo 2.5R goes to heaven

Unfortunately the Nitro Revo 2.5R I have suffered some issues several weeks back. I had it run away from me and then several weeks later I went to use it again and found it had issues starting.

I gave up in frustration and ordered an e-revo (after selling off my other 2 electric cars). Courier came early today to drop it off, but didn’t seem to knock or hang about. Now I have to head to the courier depot tomorrow morning to pick it up.

I got a blue model, should look great. Will get some new batteries for it, in the meantime will need to use the ones it comes with and my old LiPo’s.

For more information on the Traxxas E-Revo check out the following site link here.

EDIT: on the bright side, I now have a fair few spares from the old nitro that will work on the e-revo model.
