  •  Keeping up with software (9+ / 0-)

    is always going to be an issue for the folks that
    have to use it on a regular basis.

    That blanket assumption bullshit regarding current
    skills and abilities pisses me off too.

    Most of my work now is temporary contract assignments.

    My last assignment was doing a data conversion from
    a really old system from Digital Equipment.

    The Twenty-something employees didn't have the first
    Damned CLUE about how to do what was needed.

    The manager asked me to stay on for a while longer
    to work on other parts of the project.

    The Twenty-something Nitwitts got a BIG surprise when
    they found out that I also know stuff like Visual Studio,
    Java, Oracle, Perl, Crystal reports and Peoplesoft.
