There were a half million dollars worth of print ads in the paper,
lots of C/C++, Unix, Oracle, Web stuff, some Windows, OS/2, VMS,
something for everyone.  COBOL, MVS, Y2K is developing.

If you're a degreed programmer with more than 4 years experience in
ANYTHING, you should be earning at least $75,000.  

There were about a thousand separate ads, some listing dozens, hundreds
of openings.

If you're still on the fence, polish up your resume and send it on a
test drive BUT don't complain when the headhunters start calling you at
home, at work, in your car.
