That's about it, I was thinking I can bootstrap myself through the
SCJP, and then invest serious time and money on the SCJD, possibly as
part pof a new job (which is why I'm learning Java - lots of jobs
using both or asking for at least 2 languages)

I'm ordering head first java, mr bunny and effective java books in a
minute and reading online tutorials and getting familiar with eclipse
this weekend.
