Re (Slippery Bob): I appreciate your feedback being negative towards my chosen professional path but you did not do anything to explain why you feel that pursuing computer forensics is a bad idea. Cyber crime is on the rise and people with computer skills are being sought after for positions in law enforcement so I fail to see where you are coming from.
Re (Matt): that was an interesting story on Wikipedia but how is that related to my question? lol
