All I can think of is the song : Money for nothin' and the chicks for free...
I'm sitting at work and like a million times before - an email comes whizzing into my Inbox. Wait. It's from CISCO. Hmm. "Congratulations on becoming Cisco certified! " WTF? I didn't just become certified. Oh... yeah, I did. I was -converted- from a CCSP to a CCNP Security.
There's been a lot of whinning and worry and speculation since Cisco announced the CCNP Security. Now we know. Those with a valid CCSP certification are now CCNP Security certified.
I just verified all my personal information -- and I think they're going to send me a new certificate.
FYI - The valid dates are the same as the CCSP. It's just a new name.
But I have to say "Good Cisco"....... They could have made us wait to renew to 'update' the cert name. They could have made us test again to get the new cert. Hey, they could have been like MICROSOFT and said that this was just so totally new that you had to take ALL the tests again. But they didn't. And that's good.
So now I have another new piece of JPG on my sidebar.
