(I’m going to keep this post as a sticky for awhile.  New posts appear just below.)

Sometimes the news just comes alive, you know?  In this case: the economic downturn caused sales at my company to tank, and 30% of the employees were laid off, including me.

I actually got that job after posting a blurb on my rant page, so it’s worth a try: anyone need an experienced C#/C++ programmer, with excellent architectural skills, a passion for good UI, and the ability to write readable documentation?  Contact me: markrose at zompist.com.
