If the market turns around, the requirements will lessen. In a booming job
market there is room for tool monkeys (those who know little about
technology snobs (those who know little about the tools or writing in
and even literary hoity-toities (great at writing prose but useless with
and technology). In a tight market, you have to be a technological snob of a
tool monkey who can write perfectly.

do a Senior for years and years and years. BTW, it's my birthday. Beware
