I guess my nameserver doesn't like your address.
Anyway, here's my response - no peeking the rest of you!! :-)
Easel called me, but they were interested in talking about a training position
and I can`t travel. I also think they wanted to pay less than I need.
I do and don't have a new job. Bull contracted out their development work to
Peritus and Peritus hired all the developers with Bull's money. I am in the
same place, with the same phone, doing the same work, for the same money, but
I don't have to worry about being layed off in December as everyone else here
will be. I am now the sole writer in the company, so things will be interesting.
Good luck with your new career path and new PC (if you buy one.)
