I have it on good information that I will be offered a job I interviewed for (same place different project). I will get to grown my meager Java skills (and I do actually like Java) and help maintain a system (in Perl) that parses email messages for ship positions world wide. I think maintain might mean clean up, refactor and stuff along those lines.
This will actually be a big step out from being an accidental programmer/systems admin to being a full time programmer. Needless to say I have butterflies already, and I haven't even been officially offered the job. I am very excited at the prospect of getting to program full time though.
