Surreality ... I got a job

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.

That's great, hope it all goes well. :D

How local is it?
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!

well.. if i ever move to the states im gonna put on a parking lot :p
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.
