Been limping along on the programming front. I've gotten to the point where I have burnt out on programming. It took me a while, but I now understand what makes me tick, what makes me burn out.
My main love in programing are desktop clients. The area I live around has basically moved to web applications. I really dislike web programming. I find it tedious and infuriating. It's just not my cup of tea.
My last job search was pretty intense. I'm not in a postion to move (nor do I have the energy at this stage in my life). So I did what any good Borg would do. I adapted. I moved into the database world head first.
I've been doing SSIS as my primary duties, and maintenance programming as my second duties. This has helped immensely. I feel like I want to program again, but not for a living.
I have a lot of little projects that I'm in the process of updating. My current goal is to learn Caliburn.Micro with WPF.
