the dreaded pink slip for Christams. Bastards! Well, if you want to move to the Milwaukee, WI area, I *might* have a position opening up for you in late January. MMMMM....Wisconsin in January. I'm afraid they won't pay your relocation costs, and it's highly dependent upon whether work picks up in January like it's supposed to. If I could, I would hire every1 here to do my job, but that's not up to me. If there is indeed an opening in January, and they don't fill it right away, I'll post in the forums for general perusal. I'll also post my email addy so you can send me your resume ; I'm supposed to be involved in the hiring process, so a favorable review by me of your resume might be the edge you need to land the *entirely hypothetical at this point* postion. Sorry I can't do more for you at this point; I've been there, I know how much it can suck; and we geeks need to stick together.
Have a Happy New Year, let's hope it involves a new job for you in short order!
