some code monkey that uses predominantly C++ on windows platforms.

have worked for companies such as ntl broadcast(an ex UK Telco now renamed and nothing to do with CATV) Honeywell (an experience never to be repeated) and McLaren Electronics, doing whizzy F1 telemetry type stuff (cool!) now works in a small place, producing legal Database UI software while trying to think up an interesting handheld game concept or trying to hack some hardware beyond recognition.

comment Exclusive of cost, what is the ideal monitor set up for a team of programmers?
Need any more developers? Oh the joy to work somewhere that devs are so revered (not my current spot...) here 2x 17" is considerd the luxury on a 2.2GHz C2D. our builds take 25 mins and could REALLY benefit from more parallelization, but the IT bods already think our hardware is Blazin'! and we ARE in a country where the Devs cost >> hardware cost...
