    I have B.Comp(CompSc) and BCompSc(Hons). It's really one degree but they changed the name while I was doing it so I got the original degree I enrolled in and the "Honours" bit was added under the new course name.

    BA (Hons) in Business Management, Masters in Knowledge Management and then realised I hate the corportate world so got out at 38, moved to Spain and opened up a Health Spa. Now the degrees aren't worth the paper they're written on and aged 40 I'm a happy camper with plenty of time to ride.

    BS computer science, minor in history ( was thinking about going to law school - heaven forbid!) Working on a master's in robotics, because I'm bored with what I'm doing.
