    Time for a new step.. Again!

    Congratulations, my friend. It seems to be a rare thing these days, around here anyway, to get a job, and/or career, doing exactly what you want to do in the field you want. I started my IT journey as a hardware/desktop support technician, with hopes to eventually move into a developer role within the company. It took 8 years for that transition, but I built a lot of relationships along the way that would end up benefiting me in my current place in the company, and I wouldn't change a thing.

    Enjo is right. The geek shall inherit the Earth.

    Congratulations, fellow linuxer! Skillsets like this are usually in high enough demand that you can afford to dictate where you work and what else you get along with it. Don't be afraid to make positive career decisions for yourself, even if the company you're leaving did need you. They'll cope without you and you won't enjoy staying in a position where you feel overworked and under-utilised. Kudos to you for branching out!

    Time for a new step.. Again!

    I remember that I got a job at university in a pretty informal way: A friend talked about a problem at a research project of his employer, I had nothing better to do on the afternoon, 60 minutes later I had been employed...

    Now I am campaigning for becoming senior developer before my hair turns gray...

    Good luck, good launch.
    Thanks, it was a good launch. MER-C is on her way, launch photo's will be posted soon.

    I'll be keeping an eye out for updates!

    I've got to get back into the VSA stuff. Writers block and work have been killers.
    Thanks! Yes it's hard to find time to fly AND keep everyone who's interested posted (although I really like that, like some sort of "This week @ MSA".
    Looking forward to some updates from your VSA

    Question: Is there still a launch pad that can be used to support Delta II launches? I thought the pad they were using for Delta II launches was taken over and refurbished for launching some other vehicle already?
    Not yet in my Sol

    Building a small IKEA closet

    I'm doing some cabinetry myself.

    I like working with my hands.

    [IMG]http://www.orbiter-forum.com/picture.php?albumid=604&pictureid=5536[/IMG]

    All of this came from IKEA too.
    If I can dig up the money, I'll build my own simpit.:)
