as it is so quiet today i thought i would have a go at the r6 clp upgrade exam. this is a certification scheme run by lotus that is meant to prove competence. first of all i passed. but only just. i had forgotten how much the questions revolve around your knowledge of the menu systems rather than actually knowing how to use the product efficiently. as i have barely used the latest version of notes i was really just guessing at the answers. so this sums up the value of the qualification. i do need to have it though as when i go for interviews it would be very hard to explain why i didn't. certainly i would never interview a developer without the magic letters.

so that's that sorted for the next year or two. (for the record, the pass mark is 70% and i got 75%)
