It is not wise to post your e-mail address unless you want a lot of unsolicited e-mail.

There is not much of a mainframe market in the UK due to a lot of companies outsourcing to the India and points beyond. I was unemployed (from mainframes at least) for over 4 years despite (or maybe because of) 34+ years experience. Hence the pig farming (and mainframe development in another country).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

However, there always seem to be testing jobs thrust at me but requiring skills that I do not have. I get mailings from CWJOBS - look up on Google
