Let me share a few Cisco commandments... two for him, and one for you :)

Cisco Commandment #1: Before thou reboots a router, thou must compare 
saved and running config for differences.
Cisco Commandment #2: If there are differences found in commandment 1, 
thou shoudst not reboot until thou verifies what they are and save if 
Cisco Commandment #3: Before thou logs off a router, thou should save 
changes once they are verified to be working!!!
