    It might be the best thing that ever happened to you. I've been unemployed for eight years now and could never go back to working for someone else. If there's any way you could consult or do contract work in your field, it's great to be your own boss! :cool:

    Best of luck in any event.

    Whether that's good news or bad news is how you look at it.

    I'm an entrepreneur, that's the French word for unemployed.

    I figure if I'm going to have a job where I have to report to some jerk, it may as well be me.

    Hope you find fulfillment soon.

    You should come do some pre-wire with me one day so you can complain about how truss', sub floors, and vaulted cielings are all jacked up in buildings. It's fantastic, let me tell ya.

    Oh I've seen some winners. Most of it comes from the design of the house.

    Sorry to hear about that Alan, has the market really slowed down that much in the Austin area? Hey, we still need to head out to Reds (or preferably somewhere better) to go shooting!
