Long time no "C"

... or C++... or Java. ;^P

Well, here I am again... at another crossroads in my life. After a four year hiatus from programming, I am now looking back and wondering if I made the right choice. I won't get into the motivations for my absence, it all seemed like the right thing to do at the time, but as I fire up my IDE for the first time in a while there is definitely some apprehension.

But now, it occurs to me that I am probably not alone. There are probably lots of people like me who, upon hitting their heads on a glass ceiling, decide to test out other opportunities. So I'm going to start blogging again, but now from the position of a prodigal son.

I'm going to be discussing the things that get forgotten when one is no longer immersed in a profession. What are the gotchas that I've long since forgotten about? Is it like riding a bike? I used to always say that the syntax is secondary, it's the analytical skills that matter. Now's the time to put my money where my mouth was. If that's true, I should be able to get back up and running in fairly short order.

So, without further delay... here we go.
