    Why are you messing with Comp Tia certs? I didn't bother with them. Went for my mcsa, mcse, mcp and mcitp. Each one I got I kept getting me more job offers.
    I want to have a better understanding of the basic from hardware to networking then I'm going to do the comptia network.

    IT jobs in the UK mention CompTia as a good advantage and is asked more from what I look at.

    I also at a permanent job right now so I'm reading all different sort of certifications.

    As well was going to ask my friend that I know what he thinks will be best for me as well, I ask about CompTia they said that good place to start out with.

    I'm also saving money to do an online university degree course.

    Worse is that he went to the zoo yesterday. :P I'm not a fan of zoos personally. I have similar feelings about aquariums too.

    Having a degree is nice but the certifications are more important in the long run. Experience counts for a lot too. Nothing against a degree btw.

    I'm always torn between appreciating and being awed by this amazing creatures while they are preserved in a save surrounding, and the fact that no animal can really be hold captive in a appropriate way for the species.

    Well whatever works out best for you BP. That's the main thing. I personally found more value in Microsoft and Cisco certifications. Security and messaging are two hot areas at the moment. I went with messaging in addition to network administrator/engineer because I figured e-mail isn't going anywhere for a while.

    This is true. I know of many with degrees that didn't get many job offers until they got certifications to go with them. There was an article on this not long ago. Keeping with the theme around here, I can't find it at the moment.

    The HTC 8X 16GB arrived last night. It is an absolute delight and not to mention in mint condition. So now I am really torn between it and the 810. The 920 I am sorry to say is going to go up for sale even with its fancy DT-910 wireless charger:-(

    I felt terrible after getting up. Then I went for a run and now I'm feeling quite good. I think I'll get a coffee in the canteen at the lab and then I'm ready and well to fight with the protein purification machine ;-)

    Yes, but you will still need to stay current in your field. A degree without staying up to date isn't worth much. A younger guy with a more recent degree can be brought in for cheaper.

    You have a dedicated day for this? ;-)
    Somehow I knew this was coming...(no pun intended)

    I meant going over the 'hump' of the week. The mid point in otherwords. In otherwords, it's smooth sailing from here to the weekend. :P
