Ooooh... ahhhh...

I have been an RHCT for less than 24 hours. I feel different.

You have to understand, to a schmuck who couldn't afford college, been told he was a loser for the first 18 years of his life, and have taken and failed several certificate or qualification exams, this is the first piece of paper I have that has any merit whatsoever (well, since my High School Diploma). I mean, I have certificates from classes I took, but I failed the CCNA, outright failed the first RHCE, failed an MCP, and even failed the US Postal Exam (dyslexia is not your friend on the USPE). Even in high school, I got a 2.5 average, and I could work and study my ass off and only get a C+.

So please excuse me if I just take some time to bask in the glow. I got mail from them, stating a lot of stuff: I got a PDF certificate, I am now allowed to use their logo on business cards, I get a free job listing, etc... pretty cool. Redhat Secret Fan Club.

Thanks for all your support, guys. I wouldn't have done this without your cheering me on and believing in me, and that's not just some canned statement, I do mean that.
