I do NOT count CNC programmers as part of the IT industry!
Just because someone programs a sequence of simple commands into a machine, it doesn't make that an IT company, or the staff doing that programming as IT staff.
That there is fightin talk :+)
Todays task has been figuring out howto machine 4 sides of a rectangle on a rotating device, while only being able to use 1 datum point for reference and figuring out how far said datum point moves from previous position to new position as the part is rotated, then figuring out the tool positions to machine features onto said rectangle.
Given in the past I've written Java applications to recieve/send CNC control programs via the serial port, and have a distributed design of the above using a traditional client/server arrangement, I'd much rather debug a multi-threaded server thats having deadlock problems than do CNC stuff
But since open university qualifications dont seem to count for much with recruiters, guess I'm stuck with CNC stuff
