comment What to do if a co-worker is editing your code just to change the appearance?
THat's your readability, I find unindented SQL code to be much easier to read because I read fast and indented code slows me down and makes it harder for me to focus.

comment What do you put in the “Computer Skills” section of your resume?
I do agree that somethings that you are less familiar with can go on the resume as long as you have actually used them and can talk reasonably knowldgeably about them in an interview. I usually break my list into Expert and Familiar With. And you should eliminate anything from the list you no longer want to work with either - Access is no longer on my resume!

please make some little edit because it won't let me remove my down vote now that you have clarified because it's been more than 24 hours since I made it (wierd rule).

comment What can slow a developer down?
It's not so much the team is spread thinly but that management didn't think about dependencies in assigning projects. And somethings that were assumed to be ready at the point the other peolpe got assigned to the project were not once people tried to actually use them.

comment Job hopping, is it a problem?
Self-respect doesn't pay the bills. I wouldn't hire someone like you becasue you sound to me as if you havea an attitude problem which is why you think every job is too horrible to stay at. I have self-respect, but I still have learned to get along in less than perfect places becasue there are only less than perfect places.

If you tell me you have a skill of something you want to work in but have no experience in, I guarantee you won't get past the intervview when I ask you what you did using that technology and you will never be considered for any other position at my company again as that is called lying! A resume is a description of what you have done and if you put anything in it that is suspect, you will be eliminated.

comment Job hopping, is it a problem?
A person who accepts more than two crap jobs in a row has suspect judgement.If someone shows they can't hold a job for longer than a year over ten years, most hiring managers will eliminate them. This can especially be true at good companies where they have the pick of the prospects. Why should I waste my time on someone who can't work for anybody when I can get this equally qualified person who has shown he can? It costs a lot of money to hire and train a new employee. So yes you should stay at the crap job for longer if you are getting into this territory.
