What is considered Advanced C++?

I have been learning C++ and I want to become "advanced" but what exactly is advanced? What level would I be considered after completing a book like "Accelerated C++"? I know it takes years to become truly advanced but what would you say are the topics I would need to know to be considered "advanced"?
In my opinion an advanced C++ programmer is the programmer who wrote a book on C++.:) That is he has something to say other C++ programmers.:)
As far as reading lists, I'd say you're getting there after the books listed as "Advanced" on http://stackoverflow.com/questions/388242/the-definitive-c-book-guide-and-list (I don't really see them as 'advanced' but rather as introductory books into advanced concepts)

C++ is a very practical language: good understanding of the language isn't enough to be a good programmer, you really need the work experience.
