So I applied for an "Internet Engineer" position at the ISP where I work and got the good news that I got the promotion today!    I start my new duties on October 6th.  I'm nervous but excited as this is essentially the top of the technical food chain here.  I'm hoping to have one other big announcement around the 6th or shortly thereafter, so don't think the good news is all done and over with.  Add in Kato's welcome home party at Pete's place on the 11th and it is starting to looking like a great Q4!

Just thought I'd share my good fortune.  It's all doom and gloom with the economic nonsense - it's nice to see a ray of sunshine in all that.

Yea, I've got an appt. with a surgeon on Oct 6th.  May be tonsils-out time.  If so, I'll postpone until after the party.

Yay!  You get a promotion and then get to make all your new co-workers sick!  Tongue

I just remember stories of animation studios getting taken out whole by the flu because a manager thought he was being a good worker by coming in to work with a bad flu.  Tongue

Congrats, Ron. You'll do great as long as they don't ask you to head the redesign of their website...at least on any kind of reasonable time table.
