yes this blog is not dead and I still post

no excuses (because like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink) for my lack of activity on this blog. I'm currently working on passing my first microsoft test on the way to MCAD (and possibly MCSD) certification. this is a career move, a little strategic planning, something to keep my options open, keeping my skills up to date in a concrete manner. while many pooh-pooh certifications as not reflecting real world quality, typically there is nothing better to go by and many small companies need a certain number of microsoft certified people on board to keep their "MCP" status - which in turn drives business to those companies. that's all for now, I've got other priorities, but did want to break the silence with some kind of posting. laterz!
