in reply to Certifications are dumb.

Where were you three years ago when I was stuck in a position I hated? :)

I've studiously avoided certifications. Even if you're good at what you do and just have a cert as a resume line item, you only end up working with other people who have no skills beyond a cert.

The very reason I've come to prefer Perl is not because it's the best language out there, but because it tends to attract some of the best people.

[Corion]: I'm coming to the slow/late realization that Linux is far better/convenient for rooting/modifying Android devices than Windows, as there is much less baggage interfering with adb when you want to send new firmware to a device...
[Corion]: But I think I missed the big sell-off of Amazon Kindle Fire 7 (2015) devices, as they're not for sale anymore and the newer devices don't have a replacement Android yet. But at EUR 40 per device, they were quite OK
[Corion]: So now I am on the lookout for other tablets in that price range or lower, to repurpose them for whatever ;) One is used by my sister as clock in a photoframe, and this one will be used by my father as display device to entertain unruly kids
