    I'm actually hitting the wall financially now that I'm on to the SANS stuff. $900 for a challenge or $3500 for a course is tough to swallow.

    I'm spending more and more time with non-cert studies like programming. I'm aching to get into exploitation and reverse engineering. I need to tough out these college courses for a few more weeks first though

    I'm actually into programming. I'm writing a 6502 emulator as a project in my spare time. The core is pretty much done(addressing modes, Memory placement haven't yet implemented interrupts) I will start writing the rudimentary assembler soon. Written in C, compiler optimized.

    Burnout is a term I know all too well lol.
