Damn, it’s almost like looking myself in the mirror!
I got a job 4-5 years ago; I picked it up fresh out of uni and that was an achievement. Then I let my guard down and did not really refresh my knowledge or kept up with the new technologies. I got used to being (very) good at what I was doing until I got bored last year and started a new job for a different company. Now, 4 months later, I feel like I’m the most dumb telecoms engineer in the world and don’t even deserve my pay check!
I “blinked” for the past few years, which was too much! Or maybe I’m being too harsh on myself… either way, although employed, I still feel I’m at the rear of the train now and don’t have the skills to keep up.
But hopefully my optimism will resurface soon
I'm sorry, but this comic is just so unrealistic.
I mean really, how could you forget the DTD tag?
I guess Lemont's skills are really out of date!
The WHAT tag?

I think I'm going to stop with the geek comments. I'm just confusing too many people.
Oh, and I was trying for humor in the original DTD comment, not anal-retentive nitpicking. Failure all the way around on my part.
Terrific! So many people I have to send this to.
I once taught a computer class at a high school. I think it was about 1998 or 99. We hand coded the whole page. I was new to it and found it pretty boring, and the kids hated it, too. Then I learned Dreamweaver, and taught that. I thought it was pretty slick, and the kids (at the school where I am now) were still kinda "meh" about it.
WordPress, however, seems to get some love from the kids I didn't get it at all at first because I didn't have to upload anything to make it work. It freaked me out a little at first.
Thanks for a great strip. One of about three I read every morning no matter what.
I googled it. definitions:
