I reckon I will have to break out my fancy duds!
I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say, "We're proud of you, Hoot."

At least you will be getting some use out of those fancy duds.

I think we should get us a banjo player and have a hoe down after the ceremonies.

Wow Hoot, with all of those honors I hope you don't go getting all big-ego'd on us and stop being nice. Yeah, I'm thinking that wouldn't happen. Congrats again.

lol, andy. there actually are courses for "ethical hacking" offered now in colleges and trade schools. they're intended to teach programmers and engineers how to protect their systems.

I know it's not computer related, but I was astounded, ASTOUNDED to learn that some colleges offer brewing classes and what not. . . SIGN ME UP! I've had lots of practice drinking the stuff, and if you can boil water, you can make beer. Makes me want to go get a proper education!
