    no, there will be a notice sent to people who recieve MCP Flash and it
    will be posted on the MS web that an exam is set to retire in 12 months.
    if they were to post today the retirement of the EXAMs (all Win2k exams)
    then you would still have 12 months (Sept 2006) to complete them.

    Microsoft does not actually retire teh certification after you have
    recieved it, but you are reference by the versioning. My transcript
    indicates that I have been an MCSE since 1997, an MCSE on NT 4.0 since
    1998, and MCSE on 2000 since 2000 and an MCSE on 2003 since 2003. The
    3.51 exmas have long since been retired but the MCSE as of 1997 would
    indicate that that is the platform I first certified on. The NT 4 exams
    are also no longer available but my transcript reflects it.

    Neil says:
    OK, but MS says:
    So I don't expect MS to post news on the web site about the retirement
    now, but in June 2006.
    Or could MS announced this in the MCP Flash before June 2006 and not
    post it on the web site?

    and they change thier mind frequently. regarless, you are correct for
    now. June 2007 would be the ealiest for teh exams to be retired. the Cert
    (as the program stands) will not be retired.

    Doesn't this date look just a little suspicious to you, Neil?

    Maybe you have to be a programmer to appreciate it.

    As for when, the date currently set by the MS Certification Team is Feb 29th, 2007.

    Nope, it's June 31st, 2007 ;-)

    In microsoft.public.cert.exam.mcse, Neil spewed across the ether:
    You lie, f'n guy!

    I heard some jameshole say that none of the MCNGP were MCSEs! I read it on
    USENET so it must be true.

    And you don't have no job, neither, so don't try to lie about that.

    I eat lunch around 11ish... so if you could be dropping it off at my desk I
    would greatly appreciate it.

  14. We have a wiener, congratulations!
    I figured Feb 30th would be a bit too obvious.

    I can't believe this Matt fella. What kind of J.A. asks a question and then
    is a jerk to those who actually answers the questions?

    In 1998, while modifying our DOS programs to be Y2k compliant, a frantic
    user called me and told me that the year 2000 was going to have "an extra
    leap day!"
    She claimed there was going to be a February 30th, 2000. When I asked where
    she had heard this, she couldn't remember. Spent a few hours googling for
    anything on the subject, nothing. Called her back, and she said she
    remembered hearing being said by Andy Rooney on the radio.
    Welcome to USENET, here's your accordian. This sort of thing happens even
    more frequently in the visual basic groups than anywhere.

    well, you are partically correct. I don't work.

    I have a government job. That means that even though I have a job, I don't
