Married? Me? Nope, been happily single my whole life.
I have, however, had an Italian girlfriend best called "Queen b**ch of the Universe". Don't call her that to her face, though. We've been apart for the past 5yrs, and I could still hear her b**ch me out if I did what you did. When I was with her, I considered changing my name to "Whippy McWhipperson".
Sounds like you've got a little pickle, there. makes me kind of wonder if you purchased a LEGIT CEH courseware package. Is the outside box RED in color? I did the class in July 04 (almost 2 yrs ago now!) and the box (ver. 2.3) the books came in is the color of EC-Council, a bright red. My CDs that accompanied the courseware came in there own jewel cases. I got a CD of the courseware tools, and a bootable copy of Knoppix Linux. But I didn't get any backpack or t-shirt.
V.2.3 courseware contains: (2) RED 3-ring loose-leaf notebooks, w/ courseware on 3-ring punched paper, 2 CDs in Jewel cases, EC-Council notepad, EC-council RED pen, and paperback of "Hackers Beware", "Official Course Material" by Eric Cole, written for NT4 platform. Instructor told us on 1st day of class this book is useless, but it still contains lots of valuable info for newbs just starting out; but it IS for NT4. 778pgs.
When I finally got my certificate 3 months later, they sent me the welcome pkg, consisting of the actual certificate, thank you/welcome letter, bumper sticker/window clingy, and business-card cd of bootable Linux.
Due to my complaining and phone calls about how long it takes to get the cert, they sent me a t-shirt (white Hanes, with Ec-council logo on the left, and CEH logo on the right), round playing cards, and two more window clingys. I really wanted the window clingys, cause I have the original one they sent me (folded) in my back windshield. White background, it will eventually fade w/ exposure to the Sun. Wanted to have a few backups.
Sorry to hear you're married. We all make mistakes, I guess. Time to show her who's in charge.
I made a mistake, too. I purchased the CEH courseware (v.2.3) from ec-council website by mistake. I thought I was purchasing a test voucher, but I was looking in the wrong spot. Purchased CEH courseware from ec-council website for$150.00(I think), looked into sending it back to Maylasia, where it shipped to me from; would have cost me more than I paid for it. Put it up on eBay, and some guy in TX bought it for $125. Oh well. Live and learn.
Don't know why it cost you as much as it did. Sorry to say, it sounds as if you got ripped off.
