I agree; it would have some potential for interesting discussion.
Of course, I think we'd also see most of the posts along the line of "Please provide specs I need for a 200 person wireless LAN in my building, thank you" kind of posts (i.e., free design of a complex system with no details using the "20 question" design paradigm that ends with "Oh I didn't think it'd be that expensive, never mind, I'll go to Best Buy and see what's on sale").
We get those now across the board, so it's not really any different, and it does follow the logical split between pre and post-installation issues.
we need it especailly the design issues considered more critical than technical issues because it is the base that the network will work on any wrong design will lead to problems even if the technical configurations were right
this include security, routing and swithcing vocie and IPTEL and so on
I think having a design section would be a good idea, although I can understand the concern about getting a lot of fluff.
I find this idea particularly attractive because I am the only network engineer at my job and I often wish I had someone to "spit-ball" ideas with. I've posted design type questions in the past (to what I considered the relevant forums) and I can't express how much help they've been to me.
Besides, I know I'm not the only person who doesn't want to be referred to as "the idiot who designed this..." by the next guy who comes to the job. Any feedback is always appreciated.
