I mean, I think I have. The contract's not signed, but everything else seems like a done deal. I have a start date n all. It's for/with a tech company (no? really!) pulling together all the random technical knowledge products and figuring out best management and delivery to meet new/transferring engineer hire ramp-up needs. It's an interesting problem in terms of human performance as well as knowledge management. Thanks for keeping me company, y'all, during the panic months.

A whoppin 8 miles from home! Course that's east on 237 so could be anywhere from 10 minutes to 30, depending on traffic. I'm actually hoping to work at least half-time in the office (not sure how it's going to be configured yet) and it's on the way to the barn, instead of the other direction, which is SO Sweet!

I really need to get a job closer to home. Having to drive about 30 miles in and pay $120 a month for parking sucks!

lol.. prices are only that high in major metro areas.. beyond the obvious demand side driving prices up, the cost of the land and upkeep (taxes) on the land is rather high as well.

Nah ... just off 237/Zanker, about halfway there.

The surface roads are JUST out of the way enough that I can't ride a bicycle. As if I would. ;)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
