    Congrats! :D

        I almost asked about interviews when you said you had an "appointment" to rush off to... but I don't like to jinx things. Congratulations!

                    Just out of curiosity is the move upwards, downwards, or sidewise? I mean, how do you see it in terms of the work v money v bennies?

                    I bet losing Berry is a mistake for anyone that lets him go.

                              It's a dowards/sideways move. The pay is the lowest I've had in a while, but it isn't a major problem compared to not having a job at all.

                              But it is related to computing. Cable installation into newly constructed or in progress construction sites. For the first time in my life I'll be wearing a hard hat. The main advantage is that I will have a better understanding of infrastructure like I've never had before. Oh, and I'll be outside all summer long. rah! I've decided to get my BA in Computer Science, and as late fall approaches, I'll get fewer hours just in time for school.

                              This could be one of the best things to have happened to me in a while.
