CERT sounds like a good thing to have around; the number posted has
gone into my personal phonebook.  I hope I never need it, of course,
but still.

On another topic, I saw some reaction which was heading in the
direction of professional ethics regulation such as doctors and lawyers
have.  I don't know whether I'm taking things farther than the posters
intended, of course, but that's what it seemed to be heading towards.

I oppose the formation of a professional society to which all
practicioners of the art must belong.  Besides being unenforceable
(more so than in the case of doctors or lawyers), I don't think it's
necessary and doubt it's appropriate.

As someone else said (in another context, I believe), "Yours for the
least regulation feasible" (paraphrased).
