That sounds like an awesome kid. I think the article grossly over-hypes the difficulty and credibility that comes with passing an MCP exam but its still a great accomplishment for such a young kid. It’s been many years since I’ve been to an interview where someone gave a damn about my Microsoft certifications.

I almost hate to say how old I was before home computers or networks were invented, but that’s ok as I used to wired up my own logic circuits as a kid.

Heck I remember when soldering irons looked like this, think I’m dangerous with a soldering iron now, you should have seen me as a kid.

Did you have to soak that in a bed of hot coal before use? :smiley:

I used one of those for soldering - not for electronics though.
