poor me

Today at work, I found myself hunting for a logical-XOR function. Needless to say, upon finding it, I am chagrined, since I was looking for a way to replace != to hush some compiler complaints about unsafe comparisons between bools and ints. Chasing one’s tail is always a valuable excercise. (:

Didja hear?

Yeah, work fired me. No reason given. I’m an embedded software engineer. I’m fairly practiced at applications programming and network/server administration as well as computer/network security.

If you know of anyone that needs an all-around uber-geek, drop me a line, eh?
