Hah, like I'd care. I'd just rather not say anything until it's official in case I ended up messing something up. I don't see any reason why I wouldn't end up with a passing score though.

It's honestly more like "Christmas relief." These OffSec courses/exams can overshadow your life for months. It's kind of odd not having a sense of impending doom...

I sent the report in at 3:30AM on Christmas Eve, so I probably won't hear back until later this week. My exam time concluded at 7:00AM, so I pretty much went the distance, with a couple hours spent on the report at the end. I slept maybe 5-6 hours inbetween days, so I'm pretty worn out. I didn't even get to look at one of the systems, but the points I had should put me where I need to be.

Also, Hayabusa did a great job of "motivating" me by sending me a message when I was about 30 hours in and succumbing to rage and frustration: "Just got my results, passed. Are you done yet?" >:(

Looking back, I guess there were a few other friendly, "You can do it!" type messages, but that's the one that really stuck out ;)

Re: OSCE... check!

That's awesome both of you! Such an accomplishment, and I'm really excited for you! Major congratulations are in order. If either of you will be at SANS Orlando or B-Sides Orlando in March/April look me up and I'll buy you a beer. :)

Re: OSCE... check!

@tturner - Unfortunately, won't be. But one of these days, if I ever run into you, Ill take you up on it, for sure!  ;)

Thanks for the congrats, though, from ALL of you!  It was definitely a long few months there, and it's nice to know I finished it (and I'm sure ajohnson likely feels much the same, as I know he's got his irons in a lot of fires, right now, too.)

I'll probably do DefCon/BsidesLV, DerbyCon, and OWASP AppSec USA (NYC) this year as well. :)
