so I just  looked and on the Ubuntu website, they will soon offer an “Ubuntu Engineer” certification.  The certification will require a LPIC level 1 certification, which is “Junior Level Linux Professional” certification (  In addition to the two LPIC-1 tests, an “Ubuntu Certified Engineer” must also pass another test covering Ubuntu-specific tasks.

Since about 8th grade I have been interested in becoming “A+” certified, but never got around to it.  I think I could have done it and at one point I actually studied for it and did extremely well on an online practice test I found. But  now that I see this certification, I think i’d like to try for LPIC and “Ubuntu Engineer” certifications.  After looking over the subject list on  and on , I believe I know about 80% of the material covered in the test. (Some of the tasks I have never performed myself, but I know how to do similar things.  This might get kind of expensive, especially since I’m not really looking to do anything with my certification except to have it… The Ubuntu test itself is $100, and I can’tfind how much the 101 and 102 LPIC tests cost.  so who knows, maybe I won’t ever take it, but I sure would like to.

I have some quote from the paris peace conference to put here, but I don’t have my moleskine within reach so I’ll put it in another post today.
