Simple question, prob already know the answer but I want to be sure...
Does it matter as far as performance and/or redundancy if you connect the switches via the stacking cables in a crossed fashion with one link connecting the top and bottom switch or straight down like it is shown in the Cisco Switch Stacking documentation?

This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
