I've avoided getting my CISSP for a long time, because for me, it's essentially useless. It wouldn't raise my salary at all (I've got the experience of a CISSP, so I'm being paid at the same level) and I frankly think it's a relatively useless certification.

HOWEVER! Just having my CISSP would make me VERY EMPLOYABLE in the UK! :)

History of the UK

So things are a tiny bit slow at work right now (I'm in a holding pattern waiting for return calls), so I'm looking for online resources that talk about life in the UK. One site which has various facts and figures includes an extremely brief "History of the UK" section. It begins: "The history of the United Kingdom is very ancient"...

Um, yeah. I think I'll be skipping that site. Very ancient, indeed.
