Then it sounds like you're insisting on a geographical area to find a job and blaming the job market on the lack of jobs. People that want to be crab boat deckhands don't go to Arizona.

I tossed a few key words & technologies into Indeed and had 0 problems finding available positions around Farmington Hills, MI. (The only geographic area I decided to search).

All of those have direct need for C skills and in addition (based on where I've worked with those skills) need people that can do everything you listed. All of these companies have a shortage of engineers that can do what you listed and are looking for them (and willing to pay them). There were 21 jobs RTOS within 25 miles of Farmington Hills starting $110k

And that is one job skill set within one geographic area (That isn't Silicon valley). I can repeat those job searches across the country.

I'm over 50 and that's a major 'problem'

I work with 50+ engineers all the time. Some of them 'recently' hired. It has nothing to do with age.

that's not the issue and it never was.

Yes. It's people that insist on looking in a very small geographic area that has a flood of people wanting to live there. Driving the job market out from under people also wanting to live there. You think your grandfather got to turn down jobs from the CCC because "eh, I really don't want to get bussed into a different city during the depression. Can't you just let me work here?"

Seriously, I'm having a hard time not finding any jobs on Indeed. $100-$130k. Experience in GUI/applications development in C#, C++, and VB6. Experience working with TCP/IP and automotive protocols (CAN, J1850, etc.) Some knowledge of embedded systems. Any experience in CAN diagnostics is a plus.

This leads us to one of a few conclusions:

  • Your insistence to live Earhquake Zone is stronger than your want to get a job.
  • You really aren't as skilled as you say you are.

So we have a democratic VP that is pro TPP and has no problem with Americans that can't find jobs.

We have a GOP candidate's daughter that more or less pitched parental rights, and they applauded it. Then a GOP candidate that came out against TPP. WTF is going on with this race.

The problem isn't technically how to do it. It's how to do it within the confines of what space is available on the car.

Poke around a modern car, truck or heavy equipment and it's 'full'. Had VW done it properly the first time the floor pan of the car would have likely had a completely different shape than what was shipped.

They had to find a solution that worked and worked on the car's dimensions as it shipped.

If you search for the top senders a 'noreply' is on there.

If you start digging through the e-mail sources there's some pretty interesting (but politically boring) data in there.

Someone is running "CommuniGate Pro SMTP 6.0.4" in 2016. It was released on 28-Mar-2013 and has had Bug fixes since then
