Oi Codders - falling off a soapbox can damage your health!

I've met thick people with degrees, and thick people without degrees - I've also met clever people with degrees and clever people without degrees. Nonetheless I wouldn't wish to start decrying the pinciple of certifying accredited qualifications. Mind you I don't have a first class degree in Astrology from Swansea...

Have never bothered with that - if I had i wouldn't want my info bandied about on here anyway!!!

Why would I lie about passing exams that I don't feel were worth doing???

I haven't asked you about what exams you have done and if you told me I wouldn't bother going to the trouble of checking up on you!!! Our clients are more than happy with our expertise and that is what counts!!!!

I wonder what exams Mr Gates has passed - does anyone CARE???

I totally agree with most of that - ALL I am trying to say is that qualifications carry too much weight and experience should count for more - surely I am not the only person who thinks that???

OK, let's just accept that you haven't passed any Microsoft exams shall we, and move on?

You can ask if you want, but remember that I didn't bring the subject up, and I didn't get on my high horse about the value of qualifications. And I didn't start making vague claims about how many certifications I hold. If you, or anyone else asks, I will give you a straight answer, and one that I can corroborate on Microsoft's web site. You couldn't check up on me if you tried, because the information is confidential until I release it. But I can save you the bother... you only have to ask

Why not - they are a waste of time anyway........

Obviously only super humans like you are capable of passing such elitist exams - God I feel SO inferior......

That's for 2003 - look at 2000 and there are 272,000!!!

In total there are over 1.6 million Microsoft certified pros out there.....

You're very fickle in your reasoning, one minute you state that a qualification is elitist, then thirteen minutes later you seem to want to imply that there are more more MS certified professionals

But we agreed to move on.

You failed to answer if your degree is a BSc or MSc - I'll assume that it BSc as I could be wrong, but you just pass a Masters?

And you didn't reply to your year of graduation.

That would be interesting to know, as Swansea don't currently do Physics with Astronomy.

hey codders

take a different sign on name as if you were new to this site and read up on the individual codprawn, the impression that person gives is being an expert on everything and who keeps going down some tracks of others expertise but then goes quiet on the subject for chance of being sussed.

You do give the impression of being a bit of a billy bull$hiŁŁer and a lot of the folks on here play with you, whether you realise it or not........just a personal observation.

also you seem to get excited over some things that might not be expected..

soo......who is the real codders........give us a sneaky preview?

come on out mr Cod your time is up!!!

You might be totally genuine and it is just the way you write some things...


meee ...alas just a simple fellow
