    Advice Needed Please...

    MCSE is still a prestigious set of professional level certs. A+ and Network+ are fine, but more for technicians. It won't hurt if you have these, but if time and money are a factor, I would go with Cisco certs. You could also upgrade your MCSE to the certs for Server 2008 or go for 236,237,238 to become an Exchange 2007 Messaging admin.

    Best Book For 236, 237, 238?

    Agree that CBT Nuggets was very good for these Exchange tests all around. Found Unleashed book a real disappointment. Best was Tony Redmonds guide to Successful Implementation. There is also a Sybex book covering both 237 & 238 that's worth perusing.
  4. What do you have to lose? Most people are not really up on the fine points of expiration. I know one guy with a multi-page resume, mostly comprising lectures he's attended and CBT videos he'd viewed -- just once each!! He was a decent worker, but had never passed or even sat for a single exam.

    masters degree online

    Be careful about places like Walden, Phoenix, Nova, Capella. They are not real schools. They exist to sell quasi-fake degrees to people working in government or other dubious educational institutions, who, by getting this piece of paper, can boost their salary and ad letters after their names. None of these paces are taken serious by real universities or companies. Generally they have no entrance requiremenst or barriers, such as SATs or GREs. Everyone gets in! And nobody who pays doesn't graduate or has their "thesis" challenged or probably even read. Go with a real school. There was a special section in the Financial Times of London a couple weeks back concerning online MBA degrees from around the world. Might be a good idea to seek this out, since these places would probaly likewise offer IT degrees.

    masters degree online

    Actually, it is quite reasonable. Check it out. Remember this is not a bunch of online courses. You take the exact same difficult courses with the same grading and instructors as if you moved to Cambridge. Out in the world a Harvard degree will always get you to the top. Look at Obama!

    War on Mumbai

    "All for a piece of land called Kashmir." No evidence of this yet. It is a mistake to believe that terrorism is a product of grievance. After all, every ethnic and religious group nurses grievances...some may even be justified. Terrorism is merely a function of munitions and human concentration. Terrorism developed in the second part of the 19th Century after the invention of dynamite and rapid fire weapons. These were known as the narodniki. They had all sorts of anarchist grievances and killed many of the European nobility. World War I was the result of such a terrorist assassination. After that was, freelance terrorism died down, because terrorism was incorporated into the governments of fascist and communist nations. During the US Civil War, confederate terrorists shot Lincoln. They also snuck into New York City and tries to burn the wooden place down by setting fires in a hotel there. The Israelis have done psychological evaluations of failed Palestinian suicide bombers they have caught over the years. They have found these are generally rootless young guys who are not even very religious or political, just rootless. Same with IRA gunmen. The supposedly super-Islamic terrorists of 9/11 spent lots of time in Florida bars drinking and watching strip shows. Because terrorism has little to do with grievance, it will always be with us, attracted to crowded symbols of success, like New York, London or Mumbai. The only solution is for the various police agencies to use intense intelligence gathering and infiltration and preemptive killing.

    "Advertised prices for upscale Dubai "villas," typically stand-alone homes in a master development, fell by 19% month-on-month....

    Some Quotes about success

    From Yogi Berra: "You can observe a lot just by watching." "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." "You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there." "If you don't know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else." "Baseball is 90% mental -- the other half is physical." "You give 100 percent in the first half of the game, and if that isn't enough in the second half you give what's left." "Why buy good luggage? You only use it when you travel." "You should always go to other people's funerals; otherwise, they won't come to yours."

    Cooking dilemma

    My favorite recipe for Roast Lamb: 1. Take the lamb roast. 2. Donate it to a neighbor. 3. Head to the butcher. 4. Purchase a succulent pork roast. 5. Cook that instead. (Warning: this recipe is neither kosher nor halal!)
