Now TELL me why I want to leave for your pathetic 2 year contract?

I do ERP architecture and development work ... Most of the recruiters that contact me are looking for 6 months or less. One even sent me a position that was LISTED as a 20 day contract 1500 miles from my home. I don't even respond to those.

It turns out that people aren't willing to pay any extra for decaf compared to regular coffee. Since the decaffeination process itself adds cost, the only way to sell decaf for the same price as regular coffee is to use lower quality (cheaper) coffee beans. So now you're taking bad coffee, and making it worse. Aside from which, if you're producing coffee beans, why would you take the best you have and ruin it, when you could sell it as-is for a much higher price?

This is the exact reason I've heard from many different sources. If you were willing to pay 50% extra for decaf, then you could have primo beans, no caffeine and good-tasting coffee. Most people won't pay the extra, thus most decaf tastes like crap.

I'll admit it ... I voted for her in 2008. Won't make that mistake again in 2014.

That bill doesn't impact me; I'm salaried and already classified as Exempt. But I know a lot of hourly folks, both full-time (like help desk, etc.) and consultants that this would negatively impact.

I use it on every system I work on... It's my standard editor on Windows XP (gvim anyway), Cygwin under WXP, Solaris, and Mac OSX. I don't use linux often any more, but it was my default editor then as well.

I've had co-workers laugh at me when I'm at the keyboard using an IDE and start typing jjjjjjjjjjjj.
