Something that I am becoming more aware of each day is how dated my
jargon sounds. I use cool and stuff too often, but not in tech
manuals. Sometimes it is brought to my attention, and I have to admit,
I talk like someone who is searching for the good old days (the 60's).

Back to the links question. I have found that is a good way
to keep up with job postings. I have two search agents that return
results each day. Can't say that I've needed them, though. I know that
one student I recommended this site to was very successful, and moved
to a new job in a week.
