    I got the Job!

    For those who've been following my employment saga,
    I just finished filling out the mountain of paperwork 28 pages worth of why's and wherefore's. Dropping them off to the site manager this morning (after I make a full set of copies). Then I'm going to go discuss a few things with the unemployment office, who have withheld benefits for 2 weeks Grrrrrr.

    I start training on Monday morning! WOOHOO!

    Way to go Ned!

    I guess we will see less of you here now, but then again, with the right "Road Warrior" set up, you can be on here, while on the road, right?

    Hope you can keep in touch!

    PS for keeping in touch with the wife and kids, do you use Skype?

    I used it when I went to Austria last June, it worked VERY well and was Totally Free!

    Cheers!

    Congrats Ned!

    Best day on a new job is when you first get it, before you've done any work yet

    Thanks guys!

    Stu, Until I get back on my feet, I'll be hauling around one of my old computers, That and a monitor will fit in the back of the truck. The company supplies a 'business class' Hotel with kitchenette and so on, and most of those supply connectivity as well. The first couple of weeks though, I'll be working from home, as the project the new company is working on is in this area right now.

    John, too true, though waiting for the first paycheck can be a little annoying, it will be three weeks from today when I'll get my first check. oh well, good thing the grouch bag has a little stashed away in it, eh?

    Congrats Ned. Been following your development from when you were first thinking of quitting last autumn.

    Congrats on the new job, I hope you like it. Be careful out there on the road.
    I once heard that cats and women will do darn well what they please and that men and dogs would do well to accept it and just go on.

    I've been away, thus a belated 'congratulations'. Great news.
