Re: *nix cert

Oh, I agree with getting a degree will put you much better off. If I didn't...I wouldn't be here ;-)

Haha, funny enough. I am currently a student at a four year, and a
term of tuition, including my housing costs (3 terms a year) was

Well, but a Computer Science course, if done right (i.e., with theorems,
proofs and a solid background on theoretical foundations of Computer
Science) would be much more illuminating.

Getting a certification would be just like studying for another subject (perhaps much easier than studying for some course---again, such courses are done right, since much of Computer Science deals with problems that
are simple to state, yet utterly hard to solve).

And a graduate degree is even more mind-opening, I can assure you.
