David Manuel | 1147 comments Once again reminded of the error of majoring in the Humanities and spending a life in pursuit of non-technological learning. (sigh)

Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments Yeah, but I used to work in IT and I am completely unqualified for this job...

Michael Cargill Cargill (michaelcargill) | 2998 comments I currently work in IT and am woefully under qualified for this job.

Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Damn. I was hoping it'd suit you, Mike.
