Gotta agree. Here's my current quandary: I've been consulting for a
company
for about a 1-1/2 years. I've been hinting that I'd like to be employed
full-time. Well, they finally got around to putting together an offer ....
no, two offers. You see, two managers want to hire me. One wants me to do
writing/analysis/UI design, and the other wants me to do UI
design/analysis/programming.

I'm torn. I've been working in tech. pubs for nearly 20 years, over a
dozen
years as a writer. But the grass looks greener on the other side. I can't
decide if it's because I'm a little burned out, or if my heart is saying,
"change would be good." We'll see. I have another week to decide.

Regards...Kris
