Please note my new sigline image...     I passed.

Yup. That alphabet soup needs to add up to $$$ for it to be worthwhile.   I already have A.S. (Associate of Science - Computer Engineering Technology), C.E.T. (International Society of Certified Ele

Aren't we all.

See! They're still on backorder. I think the company that makes them in China was the same one that was adding poisonous stuff to the pet foods. It might be a while before they get up and running again. :(

Everything is on the Internet these days. I even found a pic of your sister...

The bearded collie doggie is pretty cute; sister, not so much. ;)

 

Yeah, Josh... I have my moments. :lol:

Did you use the command line nonsense generator to make that post? :w00t:

At my forums, we call this "thread shredding". It's an art form with us.

 

That being said, I would like to get my thread back on topic. I'm still studying, studying, studying... not as intensely as I would like, though. I'm much more casual about it lately. I hope that isn't a bad sign. I don't want to lose the burning motivation that I had a while back. That first crash course may have burned me out a bit. I seem to be more interested and the content is making more sense to me with my more casual approach, though. I can't drag this on forever, unfortunately. I need to knuckle down and get this second test taken care of so I can then take the easy ones (CompTIA).

 

Oh, and I still need to find a job, too. :(

So far, the trail hasn't heated up any; even with my new cert and all my LinkedIn networking. :(

Worry about a job when you are fully qualified. You'll have more options so a greater chance of becoming a suit. :harhar:

I'm sorry, mom. I broke my promise to you and didn't study tonight. I played with conky. Blame iChase and Amenditman. :yes:

LOL! Sometimes you need to divert attention to ultimately retain more anyway. ;)

 

Umm... yeah! That sounds good. I'll use that one. :yes:

Now you know that playing with conkers has been banned in the UK

So in the interests of trans continental co-operation I must ask you to stop immediately.

Even with full safety kit this practice is dangerous and can be deadly.

As you see these deadly conkers are to be treated with caution in the wild. :breakfast:

 

Layton I'm ashamed of you. Have you done your homework ? :cool:

I had to google that.

The game is played by two players, each with a conker threaded onto a piece of string: they take turns striking each other's conker until one breaks.

I discovered that I indeed had the horse chestnut correct.

We used to collect them as kids and keep them in a cigar box. I don't remember that we actually did anything with them. We US kids were not as inventive as the British or Irish.

That's funny. It reminded me of a toy in the U.S. back in the 60s that was banned at my school, too. They were called "knockers". There were two hardened plastic, colorful balls suspeded from two equal length strings and tied to a ring that you put on your finger. You were supposed to move your hand rapidly up and down and the balls would bounce of one another at the top and bottom of their rotations.

 

Yes, you sickos out there... you can be interpreting this as something to do with genitalia, but I'm serious. Bob (Amenditman), do you remember what I'm talking about here? I'm going to go look for a pic...

 

AHA!

Wow! The things you see when you search for "knockers" these days. I had to add "toy" to get any... ahem... sensible results. Anyway, that's them above. They're calling them clackers, knockers, etc. these days, but that's them. They're still being sold. How 'bout that?
