I'm a US Army interrogator and Persian-Farsi linguist. Been in for 9 years come January 11th.
44, unemployed computer programmer. I trained my replacements to go back to India to work before being laid off in April (along with 4999 other IBMers). Spent the summer in and out of hospitals going through and recovering from stomach cancer and complications, so didn't get back into looking for work until October. I've had a couple of nibbles, but not so much so far. Most of my experience has been with legacy systems, Mainframes, but also with relational databases - but the company I worked at shuffled me around from old system to old system - yay.
