All good things must come to an end.
We've had around 10 people through the racks during the Alpha testing period, with positive reviews from those that left them.
I'll be opening a beta test now (we're going to call the free time the alpha) for payment acceptance, where the public will be paying my electrical bill for awhile. (and maybe a starbucks for me once a week ;-)
Fees for trying the equipment out will now be for the next month, $3.50 for a 7.5 hour block on the CCNP rack, and $2.00 per 7.5 hour block on the CCNA rack. Every appointment will be a buy-on-get-one-free, so if you buy one now, you will get one free if you use it before September 6th. If you don't use it before then, then you will still have a $3.50 or $2.00 credit towards a reservation after September 6th.
It will go up at the end of that month, to $7.50 and $5.00 per block respectively, but with additions to service level with an ASA5505 added to the CCNA rack and proper security IOS to the routers.
