I passed the RHCE with help from LA and the Asghar Ghori book and documentation.
It helps I live in the bay area, but in the last week I got two job offers and four recruiters wanting to represent me. It feels really good! Most of my work experience is 'homelab administrator' and 'full stack developer' of my own web site and I'm so desirable all of a sudden. When it rains, it pours!
