  • This is pretty much self explanatory:

    Description: Our client seeks a seasoned Java Senior Lead GUI programmer for a hands on coding role on languages such as Java Swing, JBuilder, AJAX, Servelets
    The candidate must have had previous HANDS ON experience in building real-time trading systems.
    73 years or more coding Java GUI components
    710 years or more actual programming experience.
    74 years of more with a windows messaging infrastructure (TIBCO, MQ, WCF, MSMQ)
    7Experience in Object Oriented methodology.
    7Strong multi-thread programming knowledge required.
    7Experience with a real-time trading application.
    7Participation in system design and architecture sessions

    So I guess that I should note on my resume that I started out programming on an abacus in 1297AD, and migrated to Java in 1934 a full 12 years before anything could be coded on the ~17,000 vaccuum tube ENIAC (no worries, it works as coded)...

    Okay, so it prepended a 7 to the last seven lines of the description.

    I suppose Error'd has numbed me to formatting errors resulting in nonsensical numbers.



  • WTF!? I wonder if this happens to other people.



  • Likely the input used

    · (center dot), but it got mangled into 7-bit text (and made into an ascii 7).

    I will mention with no irony that "Real bullets work better" in virtually any context.



  • Sounds like it may be worth applying for. They may append a '7' to your salary!

    I would rather have them prepending a 7 to my salary,



  • not if your salary already starts with 8 or 9...



  • Or if your salary has cents in it, then adding a 7 to the end would get you one extra cent (if they're generous enough to round up) per year...

    Numbers aside, this job spec itself has at least a minor WTF. If you have 7 years "coding Java GUI components" you certainly have experience in OO methodology. And if you've built a real time trading application, you better have made it multi-threaded, because traders don't like to queue.

    Not really. Just because you're coding in a language that supports Object Oriented programming, doesn't mean you're doing OO. It's possible to right some very much non-object oriented java.

    You must be a teacher.

    So you'd rather get $85,000 than $785,000 ?

    I think s/he meant s/he'd rather get $850,007 than $785,000.
