in reply to Choosing Your Next Programming Job Perl Or .NET?

One for the money
Two for the joy
Three for the spirit rock and roll

Moral, professional should focus a lot on the money.
Being paid more, in your 2nd job, raises your rates for your third job, and so on .... in the future he may find another Perl. And I wouldn' take seriously something who pick a workplace because they play more games there, you can always do that after hours. But the extra money wont come after hours for playing games

    I agree one hundred and ten percent. Who cares if the work is soul crushingly boring and fills you with a permanent dread of something you used to live, as long as you get paid a few thousand more? I mean, when you get right down to it, a life time of joy and wonderment at programming isn't worth anywhere close to the 10 grand he could make at his new job.
      The 120 mile commute would be the deal breaker for me. Unless it was a 120 mile helicopter commute :-)

        Helicopter schmelicopter ... I want my flying car! We're promised it would be here by now!


        How fast (landspeed) do helicopters go? I wouldn't think terribly fast, unless of course you're either Jan-Michael Vincent back in 1984, or at least hopping a ride in airwolf.

        s**lil*; $*=join'',sort split q**; s;.*;grr; &&s+(.(.)).+$2$1+; $; = qq-$_-;s,.*,ahc,;$,.=chop for split q,,,reverse;print for($,,$;,$*,$/)
      Maybe I was not too clear the first time.
      In job one you are paid X
      In job two you are paid X * 1.6
      In job three you should expect to be paid (X * 1.6) * 1.N
      And so on ... so a higher paid job, raises you rate in the future, and in the future he may find more Perl jobs if he loves Perl so much

      The other point was, you always have fun and play games after work.
      Finally, why is working with C# so much worst, dont exagerate, it can be a fine environment.
