Learning the MS tech stream is time consuming. Being in the tech side you are the CIO's "biatch" when they, (whimsically?), decide to migrate away from Notes.
If you don't move away from the technology then you either learn the new technology, or your employment viability starts to diminish... rapidly..
I like to learn new stuff, but the ramp up is frustrating, like learning to walk again..Unless i have a good IDE I find myself writing a mish mash of languages in the one line sometimes.. hmm.. perhaps more medication will help..
