Painful memories of IE6

| permalink | rant

I don't want to think about the amount of time I spent learning about Internet Explorer 6 bugs

Hundreds? Thousands? Worst of all I wasn't even earning much money from this knowledge, I was in school for most of this time.

Jesus, did I throw a sizable portion of my life away learning knowledge that became 100% obsolete?

Yes I did, how does one reconcile with that? What a painful lesson to be had.

Moral of the story, if you're not being paid for it right this second, only learn things that will last or transferable to another domain.
