If you're 35 or over, and work in IT, or are retired from IT, and you dislike the herd mentality and clueless, adolescent snobbery of forums such as "Hacker News", then you really should join this board. Why? Because you're too smart for Facebook. And everyone needs someone to gossip, commisserate, and chat with at their level.

A collection of IT, engineering and sciences professionals, in a variety of current circumstances with a variety of career backgrounds. Including:

  • System admins
  • Developers and programmers
  • Freelancers and "gig" entrepreneurs
  • Contract, job shopping and FTE-employed contract house IT workers
  • Web developers
  • Inventors

This forum has its roots in the 1990s buildup of the IT field into what we know today and has been around since 2002. 10s of thousands of messages and threads about a variety of career, FTE, contract, and side gig issues and opportunities.

If you're as smart as the typical experienced IT professional, you have a critical mind that has a hard time staying engaged with pop culture and generic issues of the day. And you're WELL beyond the fanboy mentality of the young developer communities. Get some relief here.

contemplating what to do this weekend.

cherry blossom

*sigh*

or go to a beach, it's warm enough, though I am sure the water is ice cold.

Or do something else. I have 1000 and 1 tasks that stay undone.

Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted.  I just sat outside.  It was great to have some warm sunshine.  Now we're back to rain, wind and cold.  Winter doesn't want to give up this year.

I'm still digging out from a snow storm / blizzard. Winters feel like they are 6 months long.
