    You know the ones. The converyor belt, you hop on and several days and dollars later, you have your CNE or MCSE or random other cert.

    And you know the majority of people who go there. They have no real love/interest in computers besides its what everyone else is doing, they think they'll make money doing it, and they have no real dreams of their own so they get them from television ads.

    So they go, learn as little as they can to get the certs, then get the jobs, in the meantime the people who live/breathe/bath in computers but know better than to get a lame ass cert get screwed (i'm not one of those people, so I'm not being bitter for me) The ones who know more about a network intuitively, understand what makes stuff really go are left standing, or have to get the cert and join the masses just to get a job. Meanwhile I listen to these people call me all day "I have my CNE so you can talk to me on technical terms" and I say "okay, look at the router" and they say "uh... whats that?"

    Harrier I feel your pain Lisiten I have a few certs, but only because now days you gotta have something to get past the freakin HR (human resources) I mean thats all most look at. What really matters is do you actually know the stuff, for which most of those idiots dont. Take for instance when I was in a class we went over how to send email SOB! my friends 4 year old can do that sheesh , but have you know it there were people in there that were like DUH! So i asked them do you have a pc at home...nope..do you have access to the internet other than school...nope when did you get interested in computers.."well man you know when i first heard about the $ to be made i got interested...then im like ok ok i see where your coming from...Then I ask do you think a surgeon goes to school to only make the $ at the end.. they are like naw they like to help people and things. I usally end conversation there being i am already wanting to smack them off there ass for pissing me off. New Horizen should be sued..lol they promise a MSCE in a week... wow talking about wonder learning...man i could just go on on and on....thanks for letting me vent
