Finally, people who agree with me.
How many management personnel are out there who don't have degrees? Very
few I imagine.
How many techies are out there without degrees? Quite a high number.

This industry is such that (IMHO) experience is *FAR* more valuable than
any piece of paper.

A piece of paper won't tell you what to do what you have someoen in your
system, how to watch them, what to do, who to call..
