Me too but aren't they more tongue-in-cheek than serious advice?

Hard to tell on El Reg. For a while I thought the climate change denialism was all a big joke.

Polarised your audience.

It seems people either love or hate Dominic. With the vast majority hating. I think he's got a healthy amount of cynicism and I find myself agreeing with most of the content of his articles, and it's even prompted my to make a few changes to my CV (mostly removing old irrelevant stuff) and prepare better for interviews.

He's not quite as cynical as myself, but then that's probably an unhealthy level of cynicism.

I think many of the techies I've worked with over the years could really learn a lot... they could, but inevitably they won't. It's really about marketing yourself as a commodity, to get the best profit. And it's about picking up new skills a couple of years before they are in heavy demand (like Puppet, AWS, MapReduce, ...)

G'wan, thumbs down my comment. I dare ya.

And does it pop up in the RSS?

I see Dominic as the BOFH of city recruitment. BRecruiterFH? BHeadhunterFH?

Please do something about Hardware

If it really is The Dump where you put everything that doesn't fit somewhere else, then rename it appropriately.

I know this has been the subject of a past "management decision" --- but wouldn't it be nice to see the heading hardware and be able to expect something about some sort of machine?

And if you really need a place to put regular games reviews, how about "Games?" That way I can ignore them easily, instead of trying to work out what a seemingly cryptic headline means.
