What does all this mean?
I sure don't know. It seems to make some people more comfortable
if they are hiring a "certified" person. It shouldn't: the tests
are pretty meaningless, and I have seen plenty of Certified Folk
who I wouldn't trust anywhere near my systems, and conversely
I know people who have flunked these exams but who I would not
hesitate a moment to employ.
Since it makes some people happy, I guess I'll keep on going
and add more "certifications". As other people are more impressed
by real ability, I'll try to maintain that, also.
