I have absolutly no certs.  I haven't seen any reason to get any.  I don't
really want to know anything about Cisco products.  I may not be
idealistic enough to refuse to touch Microsoft products, but I do refuse
to touch their certs for the same reason you mention.

I suppose that considering Oracle training and certification might be a
possibility someday, but I doubt it.

Are there any actually useful programming certifications out there?
