    CCIE Voice Update - August 2, 2005
    Written by Brad
    Monday, 12 March 2007
    On August 2, 2004 I completed my Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) Voice certification becoming the 65th person globally to obtain this level of expertise. CCIE #13747.

    As of March 2007, almost 3 years later the number of Voice CCIEs globally was still only 411.

    oh shoot... they have been with him and with other family...

    from the same link above:

    The couple's two daughters, ages 2 and 4, have been staying with their father and family Cooper's parents and identical sister, according to Boone.

    When approached by an ABC News affiliate WTVDat his home Monday, Brad Cooper said that he had been searching "by the lake" for his wife. He declined to be interviewed on camera and ABCNews.com was unable to contact him.
    That bolded part doesn't make sense to me. The "identical" sister is Nancy's twin Krista. And I don't believe BC's family was in Cary. I'm sure they mean Nancy's family.

    Bandwidth Limit Exceeded
    The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later.
    Apache/2.2.9 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.7a mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at www.adventuresofbrad.com Port 80
    Seems we've exceded his bandwidth. If his web hosting is anything like most it's gotta be costing him a fortune to have all this traffic hitting his homepage.

    --edit--

    I looked at his whois registration (I won't post that here) and he's being hosted with Netprohosting. Their marketing speall says they don't charge for going over your bandwidth limit. I guess that's good news for him.

    and this is respectively snipped from our IT guy, cyberpro:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I do have a couple of observations from my POV, being an IT professional.

    1. There has been some mention of possible financial issues as being a cause of the marital stress. IMO, I doubt it! While no one outside the family is likely to know for sure, Brad is a CCIE and an MBA. For those who do not know what a CCIE is, it is a Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert. This is a VERY difficult to get certification, and requires a great deal of understanding and demonstrated expertise at how to configure Cisco products. This has to be proven in a hands on lab, you have to build the network to the specifications provided, and then you leave overnight. When you return, they have made changes to the network and broken it, and you have to find out what is wrong and correct it. While you are doing this, you are under observation by the proctor, and you are graded not only on your successful correction of the problems, but how well you used the tools and resources that you had available. This is subjective, but suffice it to say that I know some serious network folks, and they have taken the test a couple of times, but have yet to pass it. If you have a CCIE, you can EASILY make over 100k/year, even if you are dumb. I have heard of some contractor CCIE's who can make over 500k/year for taking an overseas assignment. If they were having financial issues, they were probably burning through some serious cash, and that is without even adding the MBA on top of it all.

    2. You can never know for sure, but there was some mention of finding out what he researched on his computer. - This is always a possibility, and it is possible that he is using a computer similar to a Windows Vista system that was mentioned in one of his Blogs, but he could also be using a Linux system, and know how to cover his tracks pretty well, if he was thinking ahead that much. This is not to say that no data will be recovered, but it might not be as easy as it is in some cases. It is possible, but not likely, that he might know a lot about networks without understanding computers all that well, but again, not likely. FWIW, Cary PD recently started a Computer Crimes division, and have dedicated resources to delve into this issue.

    interesting first~hand observation of BC by momto3kids:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I do know Brad wore the same cap and shirt in the search he was wearing to the press conference, but was wearing shorts in the search and not long pants on Monday. As I posted before it was pouring and gave us all a chill. He complained to someone very close he was being eaten up and itching all over.

    bump~ swimom said this ~bump
    ~~~~~~~~~~

    (snipped) Many IT specialists work from home or work out in the field. How could he possibly have even been awake at 4 in the morning after a day like that?

    I have heard speculation that it was blunt trama to the head...seems to tie back in with the shovel someone mentioned earlier that he provided the searchers. Could a close friend have driven her out of town parents to the coroners office?

    I'm new to this case. I noticed his photo album on his website. Are there pictures of Nancy on there? There are alot of people on that trip to France. Was she in any of the photos? I find it odd that he had no family photos posted.

    Disappointment - No attempt at Ironman Louisville 2007 http://adventuresofbrad.com/joomla/t...pdf_button.png http://adventuresofbrad.com/joomla/t...rintButton.png http://adventuresofbrad.com/joomla/t...mailButton.png Written by Brad Sunday, 26 August 2007 After a more time consuming MBA course load over the summer, I decided not to attempt Ironman Louisville. It was my first IM race that I signed up for and did not complete. It's not something that I am planning to every repeat. Bound for higher expectations at Ironman Lake Placid 2008.

    "let's see Columbo says look at they way the shoes are tied, if it is backwards, someone else did the tying. Blood work up....if she was out jogging her lactic acid levels would be elevated as well as endorphines (which is really why we all run anyway). If this is the case, he is screwed!! Surely being an athlete himself he should have known these things. He does have a masters degree.

    Had an interesting chat with the local neighbors this evening. A few thoughts to throw out...food for thought.

    Brad seems to be quite arrogant. Is it possible she came home from the party and found him home with someone?

    Some rumors state he was having an affair with her best friend. Her best friend's husband was heading up the search. Did anyone find it interesting HE was heading up the search and not Brad?

    IF he did this could his fear have been that she was going to take the girls back to Canada where her family is and he would have never seen them again? Could that have been his motive? It seems he didn't like to loose.

    I was looking at the Adventures of Brad website and is it correct that he hasn't updated it since January? Or is it just that he hasn't added another blog or training entry?
