I stand my ground Normis. Thats what MUM and the entire MT paradigm is. You give us everything to make a fantastic network in inumerable ways. With MT and ROS, the beauty of it is in the learning. There is no one correct way to do things in the wireless world. Go out to the events at night at a MUM and you will find 10 different ways to solve every problem. When I hire techs, I dont ask how much they know, they wouldnt be able to tell me anyway. I work with them and determine their level of problem solving skills--troubleshooting.
If there was the purported 'disaster' that senano desires to help solve communications problems, you must be able to solve problems in real time, on your feet, in lightning storms. If the first time a set of equipment is collected, senano starts calling friends to figure out how to do it, he will be very stranded--because the phones might not even work--then what would senano do?
The first significant challenge he has--get a degree to work in this industry--he has equipment, maybe somewhat familiar with it, but has nothing really working yet. If he would have already created a network, what I call a 'working prototype' and complained that it wasnt performing as expected, and asked if he was going down the wrong path--that would have shown initiative. Help might have come then. How can you learn what works if you havent broken anything yet?
MT brings you the ability to make almost anything work, if you just have the fundamental understanding. If the instinct is to call someone, and if the Internet is down--no Googling!--what will drive the newbie to the solution?
Make a poorly performing network that can only handle one VOIP call, send email very slowly, and you might make a difference. By that experience you will learn what you could have done better. You will start playing around with methods you were afraid to try. You will make the link better by trying things you werent sure about. You likely will come up with a better way than others might have steered you---I know thats true!
So the best advice I have to senano is to learn by doing. Learn by making devices connect and determine how well they work--or dont work. Try the different techniques and topologies to see if they even work. The beauty of MT is that you can do that, and there is no doubt you will learn from it. Establish communications from here to there!
I would suggest to senano topics for his paper could be:
"How I learned there is no one right way to build wireless networks",
"I didnt think it could work, but it did, and I helped anyway".
There are many of us that like to help, and truly enjoy it, but we are out of silver spoons.
I'm not the only one that feels this way on this forum.
Thats my best advice, and I am stickin to it.
As far as Karma goes, Im not worried, I can only give the advice that I believe is the best for the case, and I did.
