That's the suit side of the cert industry... actually for instance the 
MCSE certification was quite laughable in the NT 4 days... it is not 
nearly as laughable today... the reason being the night and day 
difference in the difficulty to obtain it.  I think it's about 8 tests 
now... and a lot of Active Directory stuff which basically eliminated 
the paper MCSE morons overnight... and boy was there complaining.  If 
someone sticks through it I respect that much... but it must still be 
taken in context with the rest of the resume and how the person comes
