  • Great Article
    Found this gem on Pinterest of all places, the article goes way deeper than what I would have expected.

    I tend to agree with the Shodan part of the article. It is up to the school. My school skill and dedication rules all. Time in grade is small compared to other schools, but VERY few do the minimum.

      Michael It look me a few days, but I finally got through both part 1 & 2. Very good read. Quite insightful, and impressively provided over 20 sources.
