Personally who cares about "bumps". Ig he feels the topic is important and needs replies, then bump it. once per day is rather retarded. Either that or if people flip out on you just PM a member and ask them to bump it. No worries.
The Cisoco Systems Networking class I was telling you about is an online, do it at home, on your own class. It requires a teacher only because a teacher has to set up the labs. But all you do it read the information, study, take a test, pass, move on. 14 tests total, it's easy. No homework, no nothing. It's tests and hands on work. Quite simple and worthwhile IMHO.
