I have almost 20 years of computer experience in many areas . I have worked with all MS OSes, Red Hax Linux, xenix/Unix and older Novell. I deal with a mulititude of apps, mostly MS, and amd also the helpdesk for our office. I used to have several certs but let them lapse as I saw it as a waste of money and they did not benefit me (financially) in my job. I learn from sites like this and by reading a lot, both online and in publications.
RIght ow IT life is still fun but someday I may see a need for a change and become a potatoe farmer. I guess it depends upon the next OS from MS.
