thanks joe

what a coincidence, i was called by that very same search outfit today,
except they were looking for a data modeller

i'm a data modeller, i told them

how long you been doing it, they asked

couple decades, i said

any UDB? they asked   (UDB is a version of DB2 that runs on, um, some kind
of midrange platform, risc or aix or something)

nope, i said, but i've designed for DB2 on the mainframe and the as/400

sorry, not good enough, i was told

and anyway, they said, last couple years your résumé shows you working on
something else, not data modelling

i wonder what they'd say if i applied for a job that required "Minimum of 4
years of Web interface design and development"

probably only a few people on the continent really qualify, and they're all
doing the conference circuit...

maybe i'm just making excuses for not wanting to commute to Markham

done that once already
