This Is Tech Support, How May I Help You

A nine year-old girl in India named M. Lavinashree has passed the Microsoft Certified Professional Exam, becoming the youngest person to ever pull it off (smashing the record previously held by a 10 year-old Pakistani girl). The youngster has a long history of making records in her short life -- including reciting all 1,300 couplets of a 2,000 year-old Tamil epic at the age of three -- and now she's now cramming for the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer Exam. We'll be honest, this really takes the zing out of our biggest accomplishment at the age of nine: figuring out where in the world Carmen Sandiego was. "via Engadget"

I bet she took something easy such as the "XP exam" - I wonder what her American name will be when she answering phones for Dell, IBM or HP, maybe Betty or Alice. Yeah, at age 9 I was still trying to tie my shoes so I give her a tip of the 'ol hat.
