  A degree doesn't prove that you KNOW anything...it just proves that
you're able to kiss a great deal of professorial ass and follow
rules.  A lot of managers in big companies still insist on degrees
because they want just that...someone to kiss their ass and follow the
rules.  Not be innovative, not to invent things, and not to solve

  This industry changes far too quickly to expect to learn about it ONCE
and then rely on that knowledge for the rest of a career.  Anyone who
can't learn on-the-fly, often learning by doing, simply will not
survive here...unless you count following the "click this, click that"
instructions in a Microsoft administrators' guide as a
computer-related career, which I certainly don't.

  End rant.
