Hey guys. Some of you have seen my posts in the PHP and the .NET forums over the past couple of years and now I have a question I'd like to ask you for your opinion on.
I started in 1991 with Borland C++ / OWL and Paradox db. From there I moved to VB and Access. After that, I learned Delphi and MSSQL. Later I learned ASP, DCOM, MTS and all the stuff that came with VS6. Then in 2000, I lost my last official job. I've been solo since then, working with PHP / MySQL and a little .NET / MSSQL. So much for my history.
Now, I am finding that things are changing year to year, faster than they used to, and a lot of it is more headache than benefit (in my eyes anyway). Who the hell thought of ajax anyway? And I still don't know what json means. I hate the fact that php is not typesafe, and yet, of the languages that are, they also come with frameworks I don't like.
I am tired, my back hurts all the time, I haven't been "out", or to a bar in almost seven years.
Is it time to quit? Hang up the mouse and move on?
