Honestly this was a lark, and I have already spent more time explaining it then I had planned. I thought it was interesting and wanted to know what others here (many with a great deal of experience and some with little experience) thought about what software development is.
In my quest to get a job I have come across another job web site or have I come across a new version of an old one? Back in my student days...(typing that still feels odd) I registered on a Job site called www.job.ac.uk, I have just come across a 'new' one called www.jobs.co.uk... are they the related?
I had a look and www.jobs.co.uk[^] doesn't really look like it's particularly suitable for IT skilled people.
I mention this because the site I have used accepts your CV as a word document and it seems to work quite well.
Having to individually specify every skill and technology just feels like a bit too much, when parsing a CV that is uploaded might be better for many IT job searchers.
That's just my two-penneth.

Well you are right, sir. It's just the first I heard of it was an offer dropped in to my inbox this morning. I posted that from my phone and only really looked at the sight when I go to a PC with a keyboard!
Now that's irony. I've had that happen, especially when dealing with connection strings to my local DB vs. the test environment, or the fact that I'm interfacing to different hardware (or mocking the hardware) whereas the test environment is using the real hardware, etc.

I'm ready for a new tag line for my business-related emails. (The "valediction", as it's apparently called.) I've seen "Kind Regards", "Cheers", "Yours sincerely", "All the best", etc. etc, but those are starting to sound stale to me and I'm looking for something fresh.
So how do you sign-off your formal and semi-formal correspondence? (What final phrase do you use, immediately prior to typing your name?)
Respectfully and cordially awaiting your kind reply, I remain sincerely yours,
(and Metaphors Be With You),
