>Kevin Montgomery, Happy Camper:
>>My working environment is probably the biggest reason I still work where
>>I do. I have a private 12' x 18' office. The 12' window at my right
>>shoulder gives a sixth-floor view to the north over UC San Diego and east
>>to Palomar Mountain. At least four kinds of hawks soar over the fields
>>below or ride the office building's wake. It's very quiet unless I choose
>>to play the radio softly. My SMEs are in similar offices along the hall
>>on both sides of me. Coffee and a refrigerator are twenty feet from my
>>door. I have a small printer in my office and a production printer twenty
>>feet away. Phone is at my right hand, pictures of kids are scattered over
>>my desk and the big worktable, Guatemalan weaving hangs on the wall, and
>>a cardboard cutout of Bill Clinton stands in the corner.
>Now -that- sounds like a company that truly values its writers!
>Congratulations on finding (and keeping) a corporate heaven!
