    Working with Oracle all day. Working with different datastructures all day. Did enough ASM and Java to know it's not what I want. Actually, what I need is nothing of the above, just plain and simple 20 days off would be nice

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    You're saying your job consists of working with computers?

    I'm with nv and cheez, man, I'd just like to get away from the things.

    If you feel you really must do something AND you don't know any other db, then I'd go for Oracle, at least in general terms. A bit of DB knowledge is a useful thing.

    I voted Oracle... do you have any idea how many people are looking for Oracle programmers??

    But I must say that getting away from your computer is a nice option... maybe pick up a book on one of the above if you intend on learning something...

    Admit that you CAN learn all those things. It's just a matter of self discipline!

    Matters on how you define learned something, That you just
    know statements and phrases, Or that you can effectively
    apply your knowledge in situations.

    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
