I think rates are going up at the moment. So many graduates were scared so badly by the dot-bomb that they’ve been staying away from CS courses in droves. Once the crop of students who were already in CS courses when the dot-bomb dropped the number of new graduates dropped off a cliff. For now its good as it means wages are rising. I forsee problems later on though.
Don’t get me started about Web 2.0. I’m serious now - do not even be starting with me.
From my cold dead hand DD. I hate fiddly small physical interfaces. I’ve got RSI in both wrists and I have no plans to move to a palm or laptop anytime before I’m dead. They’ll need to make huge strides in making the physical interface nice and big and clunky before I’d consider giving my PC the bullet
@Grizzly Adams I had a split-keyboard from Microsoft two jobs (and a lifetime) ago. It was weird to start with but after I got used to it it was fecking brilliant and very easy on my RSI. They don’t make them much anymore and what there is of them is expensive. I REALLY wish I’d swiped the keyboard when I was leaving because they weren’t at all popular and it probably went straight into the bin.
