I went for the interview (in the old days) and that was a scarey experience...

Now I can't really get the energy together to do the next part, the whole thesis thing, 20,000 
words is rather scaring me off :-)

At the end of it I would be a Chartered IT Practioner, question is, would anyone take me remotely 
seriously....? Does that mean I'm trying to claim to be on the same level as a Chartered Accountant 
/ Surveyor...?

Would be interested to know what other options there are, that are not commercial (i.e. not MCSE, 
CCNP) maybe there is room for a new acreditation, G33k, with appropriate ways of getting it...?
