I had passed in an exam for a job on the government and started working this week on Serpro. Moved to Brasilia. Job description: "Our platform is Windows. All our systems are in ASP (HTML + VBScript + JavaScript) and Visual Basic." I can hardly wait for my MSc on computer science to be approved so that in March I go back to Campinas and quit this job with a long letter about how wrong is spending tax money on M$ licenses. At least I'm in one of these CMM places where I'll probably draw millions of diagrams and never get to see a line of code (yeah, calling ASP code is dirty).

P.S.: at least Serpro's ping time to my MUD server is smaller than my previous job's link. Warrior Dwarf, level 38 and going.
