Comment: Just have a break. (Score 1) 783

by nickgrieve (#29893781) Attached to: Moving Away From the IT Field?

After 10 years in IT I quit and went to Culinary School. I am now back in IT. Cooking for a job sucks. Mornings at your own pace, checking emails with a coffee and a pastry is not that bad. Just take some time off IT, and do something totally not IT.

I scaled back from working all hours in a full on job for a film and TV production studio, everything was mission critical...

Now I am a senior technician in a small town outfit, my skills from past life in a high pressure bleeding edge job help me every day. You'd be surprised at how fulfilling just dropping back a peg or two can be.

from the interesting-folds dept.
Roland Piquepaille writes "Your next camera phone might get a new kind of lens if researchers at the University of California at San Diego convince the cell phones makers. They have designed an 'origami lens' which will slim high resolution cameras. Today, their 5-millimeter thick, 8-fold imager delivers images comparable in quality with photos taken with a compact camera lens with a 38 millimeter focal length. In a few years, these bendable lenses could be used in high resolution miniature cameras for unmanned surveillance aircraft, cell phones and infrared night vision applications."
