in thread I'm back, sorta

I have considered Canada, but unless my wife redid all of her medical licensing tests, that won't work. (Of course citizenship isn't a problem for me since I am a dual US/Canadian citizen...)

And yes, I feel that my non-code contributions were equally important (if not more so) than my technical ones. However sometimes saying what I think needs to be said on a non-technical level leads to conflict. This is where people are most likely to decide that I have a case of head up *ss syndrome and react accordingly... (Particularly when I am wrong and don't realize it!)

    Since when is conflict a bad thing?

    I fail to see the problem. If you're correct, you'll be attempting to show others an improved approach. If you're incorrect, you'll have the chance to learn something new. Seems like a win-win situation to me.

    Damn proprietary protocols ;)

      Conflict is a bad thing when it either becomes so prevalent that we recreate Usenet, or when one (or both) participants don't take your commendable view that it is a learning opportunity.

      Which is why I try to avoid conflict unless I specifically think that it would be productive.
