    During my 9 years career in the IT I have encountered few girls in the IT industry even fewer in the dev domain.
    Besides those who are, are not really passionate with what they are doing and consider changing career whenever the opportunity arises.

    For example, I donno the number of girls in in this forum but I can expect that it is much lower than the number of guys.
    It is strange to notice this fact:s and still helpless cncerning it interpretation and the reason behind.

    I think it has something to do with the fact that IT related work it's not a verry social kind of work. Women/girls from my observations seem to prefer the kind of jobs where is allot of social interaction involved...(nursing, teaching, marketing, etc).

    Also the developers aren't the most sociable people on earth(unfortunatley) actualy they are quite the oposite...

    (function pointer to a function accepting a double returning void * as a pointer to an array of pointers to a function pointer accepting int) == no girls for you

    Nice remark Big Smile
    But I don't have any problem with girls even with plenty of pointers;)

    I speak about it with my wife, like this:

    "Why doesn't our computer work like it does with normal people?"
    "Because I'm a geek"
    *sigh*

    It doesn't exactly go like that but after being married for over 11 years, I get the subliminal messages Wink
