Re: Just joined the ranks - OSCP v3

@jordy - the lab machines actually came pretty easily for me (but some of that was from experience)  The exam machines took a bit more time and effort, and there were a few curve balls I honestly didn't expect.  But if you spend the time on the labs, you should be good on the exam.

@Equix3n - doin' ok, but the residual pain in my neck and back is almost as distracting as the meds are hindering... So it's a sort of lose-lose situation, especially with my current customer load at work.  But I'm confident that, sooner or later, I'll be feeling better.  :'(

You will Hayabusa, hopefully sooner rather then later.
A very big congrats on getting the OSCP, it's a definite inspiration!

Now get your *ss on the sofa or with your family and get some well-deserved rest  ;)

Congrates Hayabusa!!! I am sorry to hear about the pain but you definitely have to time to rest now.  Congrates again.  You are really inspiring people especially being about to manage you time with a family.  NICE WORK! ;)

Re: Just joined the ranks - OSCP v3

@Anquilas - yes, aside of working, spending the time resting and with the family, for a little bit.  (Believe me, I don't need reminding <grin>)

@aphelion - funny you should say that... although it's not because of OSCP or anything, I'm actually in the middle of getting a new tat as we speak.  Started it the day after my exam, and likely finishing it, end of this week.

@KillJ0y - glad to be of inspiration to you and / or others.  I'm just one who always likes to try to give 125%, for myself or others, even when I need to slow down and get my rest!  (And at that, I'll go get some  :P )

Re: Just joined the ranks - OSCP v3

Congrats, hayabusa!  This is one course that I am certainly looking forward to when the time comes.  I'm starting to study for the CEH presently since my Security+ is done and even though late in the game, I got my MCSE: Security and can't wait to continue to pursue my path into the security world.  Congratulations again!  :)

For all of those in the process, or planning to be, it's a great experience, you'll learn a lot, even if you are well-versed, already, and you'll have a really good time along the way.  Just be prepared for long hours and lots of self-paced study!

Congratulations on the OSCP - that is no easy feat!!  And are those pain meds for the result of your accident or from taking the PWB class and OSCP exam?  ;-)

Re: Just joined the ranks - OSCP v3

Lol!  No, definitely from the car accident.  Just wish they actually eased the pain.  Docs keep prescribing the same things, even when I tell them nothing's helping.  My latest was that the docs ordered an MRI for me, and come to find out, they ordered it on the completely wrong section of my spine, so now I'm waiting for yet another one to be done, as the chiropractor and others are afraid to do anything else, based on my pain and what they're seeing / feeling, without having a better picture of what's going on.

I'm actually going to be taking the next two weeks (this coming Saturday through Sept 5) off work, to TRY to rest, as I can't even lay in bed with any comfort, and GOOD, restful sleep has eluded me now for almost 6 weeks.

But nah, OSCP was challenging, but not so much as to make me have to self-medicate!   :P

Well, I hope the docs figure out what's wrong and I'll be praying for a quick recovery for you. (BTW, you should make them pay for that extra MRI) Congrats again on the OSCP!!

Kind regards,
