“I want to get back to Java. Doing .NET has made me be
treated like a junior programmer.” Interesting statement for a

than a complete lack of interest in what we were doing (see two points
above), but it certainly makes him look more junior than anyone else on
“This UI stuff is giving me problems.” Well….you’re adding an image to a table……hmmm……Ahhhhh, poor muffin….
“I have defects in the tracker? You mean I have to look in
