Believe it or not, this doesn't really impress me - I know too many
people with BS degrees but no real skills. But you'll have to be the
judge of that.

I am a Software Engineer, and was also a sysadmin for about a year. I
haven't started looking for a job yet - I need some time to sit down
and think about what I really want to do next.

I am highly skilled in C, C++, Perl, HTML, XHTML, CSS2, XML, XSLT,
etc. I also consider myself skilled in secadmin/sysadmin, but don't
have much experience on paper.
