    Sorry, dunno who you are, I get a slight sense of recognition but I think you may have changed your username at some point. I haven't been on the forum for a while. Nell?

    I dunno where the "how intelligent you are" poke has come from either. It sounds a bit like you have a chip on your shoulder about something. Is it because I mentioned that the job was at a cold fusion research facility so you're part of the crowd who automatically jump to assuming that it must have been an Ultra Fucking Cool job just because of its location?

    Believe me, it was a huge shock to even be considered for the role. My experience is meagre and laughable compared to a lot of people. I truly don't think I was correctly selected by the recruitment folk over there... but now I'm just rationalising the failure again :D

    Because matching random numbers is comparable to competency assessment. They just play "pin the tail on the resume" when it comes to such jobs, surely...

    In any case, this discussion now far exceeds my budget of "fucks I have to give". Congrats on avoiding the presentation dungeon. Enjoy the job search.

    That's the fucking point, I'm not even searching for a job, the whole thing happened on a whim.

    Who are you anyway? Your arrogance stinks.

    I'll tell ya if you give me a video presentation on how awful my arrogance is.

    Somethings tells me you've fallen on the wrong side of a few people on this forum recently and have decided to turn into a complete cunt because of it, with a new username to represent the change.

    Enjoy your boring online coolness

    Ooo, I hit a nerve.
    To think I wouldn't have gotten to see this side of you if I hadn't poked under your skin.... it's like giving people permission to be honest.

    Don't let the ppts bite XD

    You have seen no sides. This is an internet forum. Grow up, child.

    You come across as someone who has started to think they have some kind of special status that allows them to be pointlessly mean just because they have a lot of upvotes on an internet website. It's weird.

    And you come across as someone who's trying to shift the focus of this interaction on me, out of having your delicate ego bruised over having your MO spelled out to you. Not an ideal vantage point from which to be telling others to grow up.

    Since you're a busy man with an actual offline life to live and other opportunities to rationalize yourself out of, let me stop taking up your time. Tschüß

    Hmm I think you're the one with the ego. To reply to my original post with such a comment is quite telling. It was hugely uncalled for. I know my failings, I came here to mindlessly vent about them. That's what the thread is for.

    For you to then turn it around and mock me, and then push things further into the discussion we're having now, just because I have a genuine fear of stand-up presentations, is a bit of a low. I'm not talking about pissy "oh I just don't want to" fear, I'm talking about heart-attack pass-out panic-attack get-me-the-fuck-outta-here phobia. I know it's stupid and irrational, but that's how these things normally are.

    The reason I'm shifting the focus of this interaction onto you is because you're the one who made it about you. You aimed to look better than me, like you had me sussed, and intended to demonstrate it to everyone with your attempted witty remarks.

    But still I feel like I lost something.
    Having been "just a programmer" for a couple of years now, I've started to wonder whether I would like it better to have "extra baggage". I'm not sure if I'm getting tired of programming though or whether the type of programming I've been doing (web development) is just not that interesting. I'm currently leaning towards the latter explanation and I've been considering looking for another job, even though I only started my current one 3 months ago.
    HAL thanked this post.

    I'm still at the stage of being happy to 'just program'.

    All my experience has been solo, as the sole programmer for the company I work for. I'm in at the very deep end with the shit I have to do, but I have absolutely no experience of working on a team or in a 'corporate' environment where programmers and technical folk all have to work together. I was pretty damn scared when asked to give a presentation for that interview, but the thing that really sealed the decision to back out was that the job sounded like it involved a lot of stuff that I have zero experience in.

    For what it's worth (I'm looking at Venoshock here) I made the presentation and it looked okay. I was willing to endure it if the job meant just being a programmer afterwards. Unfortunately that wasn't going to be the case, so I pulled out. I'm experienced in the programming stuff they wanted, but am a mere kipper with the other stuff.

    What kind of place are you working at? Do you get full responsibility for the stuff you do from top to bottom? I think I still enjoy what I'm doing here because it feels like everything I do is 'mine' from the ground up.
