observer commented on node.js Is VB6 - Does node.js Suck?.
If you don't like the words evil/scum/psychopath, then how about parasite, e.g., a programmer who hypes angular and trashes jquery.

They're using angular.js at work. I have another draft for "angular.js sucks", but never got around to finishing it.

I started using jQuery for the first time in the past year. I like it. I hadn't done much Javascript front-end work before, so I never seriously looked at it.

I studied computer science at the best university in the country I live in. The examiners commented on my good performance.

Most of my employers have commented on the high quality of my work.

I think I lost my second from last job, because the directors of my part of the company got moved and a sociopath took over. She fired lots of people before she got removed herself.

I have written a software product that has done well for itself. One of my amateur software products I wrote in a week for fun once featured on the home page of a major technology company some years ago.

Yet I gave up looking for a job years ago. It was a waste of my time. I agree with FSK. The job market for software developers is a double lemon one.

I even got 100% in a written interview test at a Swiss investment bank. The same bank even purchased several copies of my software product. Yet they turned my down for the job I applied for.

The job market is stupid.

Couldn't agree more.

Also, as an aside, is it just me or is Fallon simply trying too hard?

I don't watch Jimmy Fallon. I DVR The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and watch it during the day, skipping the commercials. (Magnavox 515h DVR, much better than a Tivo, no monthly subscription)

Can you come back on IRC we miss you and I have my own server now and it is TOR only! You can find me on the big network where we met. If you even remember me!

I almost never user IRC and the last time I used Tor was several years ago. Maybe someone else is using the name FSK?
