    Well, as many of you know I lost my job back in May. In July I started working for a company I had worked for back in 98-2001. It has been very awkward as they were bought out by another company, and the base pay dropped quite a bit. I'm also working under several people that I hired back in the day, that tooo has been akward.

    Well, as of Monday, OCT 22 I will be starting a new job. Deffinately in a different direction. I will be working for a small reproduction company. They have a whopping 9 employees. They mainly reproduce blueprints, and large files not able to be printed on standard printers. However, my postion will be spending 1/2 a day in their small forms department. In the small forms department, I will be scanning in regular sized documents, and printing them and binding them.
    The other 1/2 of a day will be spent being their IT guy. Handling their 2 servers, their website, their ftp site, and helping to integrate their new software package into production to help increase the productivity of the printers/scanners they are currently using. I won't be dealing with the general public nearly as much, and will be more in a support/admin position.

    I'm really excited and looking forward to this new opportunity. The fact that I will be working for a small company, means I'll actually be a person, and not just a number. Also, when they gave me their benefit sheet, at the top it explained that "They feel each employee is brought to them in HIS perfect timing." That means a lot to me. Wish me luck.

    Surely it's no coincidence that the word "listen" is an anagram of the word "silent".

    I would tell you to break a leg, but I doubt your new insurance has kicked in yet, and with your luck, you'd probably shatter the darn thing. Just take one day at a time, and before you know it, its KEYSTONE time again. LOL

    That's GREAT, Tony!!! I knew how much you didn't care for your old job and this will be a nice fresh start on something a new. And I'm sure it'll be a lot better. I've worked with many-a small crew and had some of the most side-splitting moments I can recall. Some damn good times... Anyway, congrats on the new job. Proud of and for ya, bud.
