Geek Van Winkle

Whoa, came home from werk today, and lay down for just a moment -- next thing you know it's 12:30am, and I'm groggier than I was after my wisdom teeth were extracted. Is it possible that I drugged my own food in an attempt to kidnap myself? Well, IS IT?

So if that weren't enough to keep me sleeping for the rest of the night, I logged into this new CBT site I've become a member with, The Internet College. Don't misunderstand ... it's for werk. Actually, it's kinda cewl because you have so many courses to pick, ranging from Cisco certification courses, to how to build a better resumé. It's lame because the Evaluation Quizzes use out-of-context questions which are next to impossible to answer. Case in point: A rudimentary overview of my UNIX skills reveals a score of 50% (guess I really don't know Jack after all). Actually going through the course gives me a 93% score. What really bugs me is that it would have been an even 100% had it not been for some really cryptic questions which, despite having the answer on an adjacent page, and me actually looking at that page prior to answering the question, I still got it wrong.

Come to think of it, this kinda reminds me of my school days, but with less beer. Hmmmn. Maybe that's what's missing here...
