I believe being on the bench for close to 2 years was
more of a detriment than me than listing basic
"clickity" Windoze desktop projects--favors for
friends--into resume fodder.

And, if I were to take a job that included production
Windows support, that would allow me to legitimately
add a *lot* of stuff that I can't add right now b/c
I have no way to back it up.  There are a lot more jobs
that are UNIX + Windows than there are straight up
UNIX alone.  Idiots are bearable.

More doors to stick feet into are better as far as I
am concerned.
