In my mind if you are using your votes on posts that means you have read the questions and replys which in turn builds your knowledge base. The more questions and answers you read the more in depth with the perl language you should become. There are always exceptions though.

I took my A+ Cert. a few years ago when I was doing Computer Repair. I didn't read the books for preparation, I just took the test. Meanwhile another worker there with no Technical knowledge read the books he got at Barnes and Nobles and also passed the test. Does that make the Test bad?

Second Example. A co-worker that I currently work with has been called an ASP programmer. After talking with him I found out that he has never wrote ASP but he takes other peoples ASP code and removes the names and minor cosmetics and gives it to my supervisors as his. They wonder why it takes so much longer for me to develope my code.

More food for Thaught


If I were getting paid based on XP or lower than my co-workers then I would yell.(But I get paid hourly, hehe)
