Mine was a contract for one year to back up a team that had been diverted to a major recall and the coding required to handle it. They had me doing the writing of test suites for code written the previous year in order to get it to pass FDA (Food and Drug Administration US) requirements. FOr a year, I browsed the internet asking for odd jobs whenever I was noticed.

Writing the documentation took maybe a few weeks and the odd jobs I did get accounted for another two. I had no IDE or technical tools to keep up skills and no fraternization to lighten the days, so I followed every story of the Japanese tsunami for a year.
