The more jobs I apply for, the more I notice things about my resume that are horrible. I typically notice these things right after I've sent off the resume. That's the way it goes. At least they get noticed and fixed.

But let me assure you that in future, it's just fine for you to pull me aside and say things like, "You know, Lindsey, the words 'a variety of' add exactly no information", or "You know, Lindsey, it might be just a tiny bit of an exaggeration to refer to Class::Std as an object system."

Heh, that format looks an awful lot like the one I use...

I'm convinced that no one has ever written a TeX document from scratch. Except for Knuth. He wrote the first one, and every one since has shared some bytes with an ancestor. In fact, this property is required, such that if you ever did try to write one from scratch, it wouldn't compile.
