Even though I have the technical skills and experience, I lack others that the position requires. While I know I am capable of learning and handling the responsibilities, his decision to not hire me as a Specialist makes sense. That said, he offered me the job as a Technician II, with the intent to move up to a Specialist.

So yea, after 4+ years working there part time, I'm finally going to be full time. Exciting.

Congrats :sorcerer:

It's not mourning yet. The sun won't come up for hours.

So I just had a meeting with my boss and I've been offered one of 2 positions as a Microsoft Engineer, which position depends on which team would be in the end wanting/getting me.

While I'm not really keen on doing MS work, I do know my shit for the most part as far as it comes to working with MS products, a lot more then I did when I was offered the Hyperion position a month ago.

I decided to go with it. While again it's not the network team, which I've been wanting to move to, I also don't have my CCNA yet and they really want that. I can still work on getting my CCNA over the next few months, as I have been planning on, even while doing the work of an MS engineer, and I can switch teams when I'm ready.

Either way, with this news and work sending me to Vegas for 2 weeks to work on our new datacenter, I'm pretty happy. :beer: :pizza:

I ordered Orgy's first album on the 10th; it arrived today. When I have songs from an album and then purchase the album, I adjust the timestamps on the new copy of the song to match the old one. For that particular CD, it was the cover of "Blue Monday". This is where it gets spooky.

The timestamps on the old MP3 version of it I had:
Created: 2002-01-14 21:15:58.000
Modified: 2002-01-14 22:04:32.000

That's right, 11 years to the day (and day of the week - January 14th, 2002 was also a Monday just like this year, not to mention what song it was to start with). And this was all completely unintentional, because I hadn't looked at the timestamps for that copy until just about an hour ago.
