I never have - kernel stuff one day, hardware another, database stuff
the next - and so on. Of course that might mean I'm not actually any
good at any of those things :)
I started playing with micros when the technology was sufficiently
unspeciated that the choice was hardware or software and I greedily
chose both. I've drifted away from doing hardware professionally but
I'm still interested in just about everything to do with software.
You're right though - I find potential clients are confused by my
lack of specialisation - I suppose they make a fairly reasonable
'jack of all trades, master of none' assessment if I reveal all the
things I'm interested in. For years I wanted a job that let me do /
everything/ but of course companies don't and can't work like that.
So I'm self employed - I'm a generous boss and an undisciplined
employee all rolled in to one :)

Ah - moon on a stick :)
