It's gonna suck being stuck in the office without any like-minded people nearby. But, of course not nearly as much as it would from your perspective. That said, the whole thing just sucks.

Absolutely grim news. I know what it feels like to have the rug pulled out from under you. When employement is at stake, it's not just getting the rug pulled out from under you. It's like being sucker punched in the gut, then the rug getting yanked and due to the economy, you get kicked when you are down.

You and Vonni will remain in my thoughts.

...damn.

I'm really sorry to hear that, man. I've been there as well, and I know it's not what I'd call a pleasurable experience.

Still, I'm hoping you manage to land a (hopefully better) job ASAP. :D

Cheers!

Sorry to hear about your job, Cobalt. I hope you find a new one (preferably better than your old one) soon.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been quite under the weather and poorly.

I truly know how you feel, Wayne. I am sorry to hear the news and we shall keep you and Vonni in our prayers. Hopefully you will find a better job in no time xxx

Congrats on finding a source of pay. Maybe it will turn into something long term or network you on the path to a new opportunity.

We're all in the same boat these days it seems.

Just kidding. The game will wait for you the same as you had it wait for each of us as we put one of these update posts up. Congrats (again) and hope to ae you posting as soon as you can...

Some big changes.

I am working a year long assignment, temp to hire. They like me so I might be there permanently. I am guaranteed a year, so it is good. I will be getting caught up over the next few evenings. Sorry for the long delays.
