Systems Analyst and Business Analyst Positions Combine!

I read an article called A twist on skills jolts job picture. This article says that companies are combining Systems Analyst and Business Analyst positions!

That can be good news if you are one of the people who have absorbed both skill sets. I think this demands further exploration.

The first step is to explore your own skill-set and your mind-set. Are you willing to work outside of your current job description?

As the article defines it, are you a "purple squirrel"?

With Justin Voss' help, we landed on the following command to compile a test.m file that we created together:
gcc `gnustep-config --objc-flags` -L /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries/ test.m -lgnustep-base -lobjc

I am grateful to Justin and those who created GNUStep.
