Full Biography

BillDL Has Left The Building.
I have thrown in the towel on Experts-Exchange because the site has evolved, and continues to evolve, in a direction that annoys and dismays me.  I decided to set a personal goal of earning 3,000,000 points before walking away.  It was 37,945 to go before the points I had accrued in The Lounge were whisked away and it was back up to 51,362 to go.   I have finally managed to get to my 3 million point goal today (12th February 2017).  30 Certifications and 3,000,000 points with an overall rank of Ace seemed like a nice round number to finish up, but it has ended up as 3,000,324 and 29 Certifications - one must have been stolen from me.  An overall expert ranking of 229 out of 123,686 experts seems acceptable for somebody with no formal IT qualifications who works nightshift in a warehouse lifting and moving heavy things from one place to another and trying to communicate with half-wits.  The extra T-shirt I earned yesterday will come in handy to wear at work.  Goodbye all.
