Did I Pass the CCDE?

I don't know! People started e-mailing me on December 26th saying results arrived in the postal mail. It seems everyone got a big piece of coal in their Cisco stocking for Christmas. No one said they passed, which I had put a $1 bet on in July. Too bad I was out of town on the 26th. So, I had to wait till I got home on the 30th to check. But, to my chagrin, nothing in the mail. So, I looked on Cisco's Certification Tracking System, the one with the old CSCO IDs. Nothing there either, but I don't have a "CCDE Number"....hmmm...is that a sign? I think I did find the problem of why I didn't get a letter in the mail. My mailing address with Cisco is my office; maybe the letter was sent there. So, off to the office the other day. But, nothing in my mail slot and the mail room is closed for the holidays. Alas, I am stuck till I get back to work tomorrow. And will probably be a couple days as the mail room sorts through all the mail from the last two weeks. Thus, I am still holding out hope that I will win my own $1 bet. ;-) Did anyone pass? I heard a rumor only three people did. ?
