AMD's processors still possess an upgrade path. I have no idea what you're talking about.

AM2->AM2+->AM3

I personally went from Windsor->Agena->Deneb without switching motherboard. Some time later, I upgraded my motherboard and kept my Deneb. I'm now thinking of upgrading my Deneb to a Thuban.

If only they would do that here. There's a local ISP here called Cloud 9 Internet which has EXCELLENT service. I'd much rather use them. However I'm forced to deal with Verizon (who don't even know how to route a CIDR block to me) to get my 35Mbps symmetric connection. It' infuriating.

I agree that the most important thing right now is mostly physical labor, but I imagine there's some kind of transitional phase where having people with counseling and networking backgrounds WOULD come in handy.

But those professionals will be needed for much longer than a week. Going there for a week means getting into the swing of things and then leaving. The startup and ending of a worker's involvement with a project are the times when they work at their least efficient.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.

Working...
