@Alex, never go through HR. If you're lucky, someone you know knows someone where you want to work.

@Alex: There sure are a lot of crappy jobs out there. I'm lucky in that most of the students I teach get to interview for good ones (although they don't always get offers).

I disagree---the best programmers are like the best writers: they literally cannot stop themselves from doing what they do best.

The ML language does indeed go back quite far, but I don't think there was a native-code compiler before Luca Cardelli's compiler circa 1984. SML also dates from 1984 with the addition of Dave MacQueen's modules proposal.
