1  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / The result.... :( on: January 15, 2004, 11:45:08 PM
 I had back surgury a few years back and had to limit the Martial Arts training quite a bit. I'd like to get back into the hapkido again though, I'd have to be very careful, no breakfalls etc.
 The discipline and self knowledge I have gained have been invaluable though, and has been qa great help in my IT training and Certification.

Way to go. What did you find to be the most difficult aspect of the exam?

 I took a break for myself in 03 and just did one test for fun, the Security+ beta.
 I'm now aiming for the "Holy Grail of Cisco certs".
Which style are you training in for your 2nd degree black belt?
 I'm a second in Taekwando and also in Hapkido.

When you get down to it there are only so many ways you can ask some questions
for instance
 How many ways can you ask about dns MX records and what they do?
They questions will all start sounding the same in short order. Smiley

No kidding
 Upper management loves that stuff.
 Probably why I'm stuck making much less than that.
 From what I've seen though that will only carry them so far before someone notices and sends them packing.
 I've seen that several times before.

 On the contrary.
 I find it more and more relevant as time passes.
 I hope you too find this out.
 At least try it with an open mind.

7  General discussions / General Discussion / What's more important on: June 22, 2003, 09:55:05 AM
I saw a comedian who said now that he is close to 40 that he realized that people in there 20's know almost nothing Smiley
 I don't know if this is true but if I have a 35 year old with experience and a 25 year old with just a degree, all else being equal I'm going with the 35 year old 9 times out of 10.
 Life experience, maturity, generally able to solve problems better etc.
 This is not always the case but it is a good general rule.
 To finish the comedian said all people in their 20's were good for was looking better that people in their 30's and 40's Smiley
 "So strike a pose a shut the F**k up" hehe
 I know this was true for me, I wish I knew now what I though I knew then.

I live in an area known as "the house boat capital of the world" in a city with a population of around 10'000 we have I think 10 house boat manufacturing plants, they are the areas largest employers collectively.
 NOt really crappy I guess, it beats the garment industry that used to be the highest employer.
 People complained that NAFTA was taking our jobs but as far as I can tell our unemployment has went down and the average pay scale has increased in our area.
 The garment factories were paying third world wages anyway and working our local people half to death.
9  General discussions / General Discussion / You know youre a geek when... on: June 15, 2003, 09:58:52 AM
I find myself not trouble-shooting some tech problems for a short while to give my down level techs a chance to figure it out "even though I already know the solution".
 I also read fantasy books about wizards (geeky in and of itself)and when someone casts a spell I think "how could I do that spell with a computer?" Smiley

I see
nothing happened to Pavlov except Pavlov.
 She chose to leave. Probably with good reason.
 You made it sound like something happened "too" her.
11  General discussions / General Discussion / We are wrong! on: May 25, 2003, 08:12:45 PM
You mentioned that something happened to Pavlov earlier.
 What happened to her?
12  Other IT certifications / Nortel certifications / NNCDS-- Baystack/Business Policy Switches on: May 23, 2003, 09:28:10 PM
While the knowledge you get by studying Nortel may serve you in other areas the value of a Nortel Cert is not high in most areas.
 I don't think I've ever seen a job listing requiring a Nortel cert.

 I totally agree, many people will not get into IT because they are overshooting their entry pay. I think training companies are partially responsible, many are still promising high paying positions to people with an MCSE and nothing else, I don't think that was really ever possible except for very isolated cases.
 Put in your time, study, learn, volunteer for projects that push your skills, study,keep your eyes open, study, use the more experienced people around you as a resource, and of course study and things will happen.
Never get complacent.

There are just a lot of factors involved. I know people with just exp. and no degree and making >60k and I know people with bachelors degrees making less than 30k. Its experience that pays out, location and luck. If I was starting out in college I would go for a business degree and not one centered on IS or perhaps minor in IS. That business degree whether it be finance, economics or whatever will be more valuable to you than any degree in IS unless you're really into programming.

 I started out with no degree and an MCP only and got 12.00 an hour, as entry level tech support in 1999. The IT job market is not quite as saturated here as in NYC I would guess.
 After almost 4 years I make around 45K per year plus another 15K in benefits.
 Should get another 4 to 7 % raise this june depending on IT the budget. For rural kentucky this is very good.
 I would guess the cost of living is less than half of NYC, for instance gas is $1.26 per gallon here.
15  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-217 / Flaw in exam software???? on: May 17, 2003, 05:52:31 PM
I have taken 22 tests at the local prometric center without having a single test go up in smoke.
 The thing is the test centers do not write the tests, the vendors do.
 So you can't blame  faulty testing software on the testing centers.
 I think it comes down to individual centers though enstead of companies, and if you find one that is dependable and your comfortable with for Gods sake stick with them  Smiley
