This isn't a job offer.
I decided recently that it is time to move on to greener pastures, and while money is a small part, it is mostly the job itself. I was taken out of the Tech Support department in October '06 and placed into the Operations department where I now run jobs on a mainframe all day.
While a job doing Perl programming would be fantastic for me, I have to look at things realistically for the area I live in, as well as my overall skill set. Perl is merely one of the tools in my tool box, and not my primary one at that.
I actually interviewed for a Windows/Solaris administrator position this morning. If everything goes well, I expect to hear back from them in two weeks.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that “nothing is worth war” is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill
