"Essentially, I took every technology and I typed out in a document how I
would configure that technology. Not all the bells and whistles and
optional commands, just the baseline out of the box templated
configuration. Then I had a little reference guide. The other thing I did
was I would randomly pick topics off the blueprint and see if I could write
a raw base configuration for that topic. Sit down on your lunch or whatever
and pick one...if you can't write a base configuration off the top of your
head you are not ready."
