    Someone got ripped off by a training provider.

    And someone wanted to get into IT and was wondering what cert to do first.
    That was guite a funny one, because all the people who usually run around saying things like 'A+' and 'self study' couldn't anymore and the forum almost imploded.

    Busy times for me recently.

    1. Currently discussing my proposed relocation to Hong Kong at work, should be in the Cayman Islands for at least 6 more months at present.
    2. Survived a 5.8 earthquake which struck Grand Cayman exactly one week after the devestating earthquake in Haiti. Thankfully only minor damage was caused here, no casualties thank goodness.
    3. Just spent the long weekend in Miami, got back today, felt great to get off the island after a year on the rock!
    4. Picked up an Amazon Kindle 2 on Saturday, absolutely delighted with it. I'll scoff my words perhaps but this is almost the end of the printed word for me. I'll finish reading everything on my bookshelf and continue buying textbooks but everything else is purely digital for me now. I truly had no idea just how good the device is until I actually got one.
    5. Found an utter bargain in Miami yesterday, went to FYE and found a pair of Shure e3c headphones on sale reduced from US$190 down to US$29.99! I already have a pair of e4c's but bought these for my Zune HD.
    6. Got a Zune HD home AV kit (dock station, remote control and av kit for tv output) from Amazon.com. On sale RRP was US$100. Got it for just US$15. BARGAIN!
    7. Bought tickets to the Miami Heat game on Saturday and never went. Too knackered after 9.5hrs in a mall.
    8. Studying for my 70-291. Finally gonna slay the beast, probably not on this attempt but on my second shot I reckon!
    9. Completely dismantled and put back together a netbook for no reason whatsoever.
    10. Spent Sunday afternoon cruising downtown Miami, Ocean Drive, South Beach and the gaf Versace was murdered at and realized that my God, Miami really does look like Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Which one is the real city? A job well done Rockstar!
    11. Proved to my fiance that watching the history channel pays off and is NOT boring by identifying two gang members on our holidays and explained to her what a teardrop tattooed on their face means, courtesy of the good people at Gangland on the History channel.
    12. Squashed my dog's fat head with my foot for an hour or so this evening while watching re-runs of Man vs Wild while supping on Crown Royal and discussing with the fiance just how great a weekend we just had err... was.

    Busy but happy times!

    You all sound busy :biggrin

    Pheo: continue to be scared by my moody Facebook pouty-ness!

    I have been grotesquely busy. But now I get back here to find you have all actually been behaving, I suppose I should just go to CompTIA to take some names and kick some ass?
