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.

    Odd, the way that works...
