Job search

Last week marked the start of my job search in earnest. Not that I have to have a new job - just that this one seems to be a dead end.

I want to be positive in my job, but I've come to the realization that the users I support are clueless imbeciles who are slowly choking the life out of my career. They're not bad people per-se, they just don't know how to use a computer and don't care to learn.

I've also decided to try to return to management. I get a lot of satisfaction from writing code, but I feel that I have no control over my work environment as a coder. Management is not easy - I hate it when someone has to be let go - but the control factor is something I can't ignore.
