Decided to go ahead and try the Developing Windows Apps in .NET exam. A two and a half hour exam, I finished with two hours left. After the XML Web Service exam, this one was a joke. The only reason I even went through my questions again was to make sure I didn't goof up due to the crappy mouse and keyboard in the center. One thing I didn't feel comfortable with was the CAS stuff. Something I definitely need to go over again. I probably scored 95% or better I hope. Two exams, two days, two passes. Tomorrow I'm sitting a Time Management class so I might not continue my streak of sitting exams. But on Thursday I'll look to pass my 70-300 exam to get my MCSD for Microsoft .NET.
On the way to work I ran over this metal thing. It looked like an after-market exhaust system some kid in a Civic tried to attach to his Civic via spit and string. The car in front of me swerved out of the way and I was presented with this shinny object that looked like Bender's head. Luckily I had the presence of mind to realize that I had a semi to my right and a mini-van to my left, so I just took it across the chin and hoped for the best. Well, the best was a hole the size of my first on the oil pan. Plus damage to a couple of the shields and the subframe of the car. I guess if you are going to mess up your car, you might as well do something where no one gets hurt but you still get the whole VW auto crew admiring the damage. BTW, if you are shopping for a new car, Bachman VW in Louisville has perhaps the nicest and sincere people I've ever met.
My insurance person said this might be listed as a collision, so I might have to drop $500 on for the deductable. A collision is what would have happened if I tried to avoid it. I'm hoping they'll see it as an act of god. This is actually my first ticket or claim I've EVER filed, so I have no idea what will happen here. I could get a rental car, but I'd rather get my GF to pick me up than drive a freakin' Dodge Stratus.
