I'm an embedded systems guy, not some "IT professional" like you hear about in the TV commercials. So why can't I find any embedded systems work? Why am I stuck doing this PC support and web site design and web application kaka in <ack, thpth> Perl?!? I don't know nutheeng about SQL in general, and MySQL in particular. And am I gonna have a rough time talking my current web database app client into switching from Perl to PHP? Probably. Ick.
Doesn't anybody want to design a nice piece of medical diagnostics? Anybody?
