Time to really start working!

I work for a large company that has a few, major competitors in the market. For years we've enjoyed an advantage in an area that is covered by a product my team provides. Just last month our biggest competitor unveiled an answer to that and has gained an advantage. We can't afford to be in second-place for too long, so all eyes are on us to respond. I mean ALL eyes...all the way up to our CEO.

What we develop is written in C# and Java using .NET (the front-end, anyway). For you nerds out there, I've been programming primarily in C/Unix for the last 5 years. I've had good exposure to the Object-Oriented world through Java, EJBs, and Powerbuilder, but this will be my first major OOAD development. For you non-nerds and others with more social-skills, I basically have to learn a new skill. We have another 3 weeks of "training" (bug-fixes, book-learning, etc) and then we ramp it up in development.

All this means extra time and focused hours at work. As a result, I'm pretty much signing off of Fireblades.org. I don't have a computer at home (ironically, it's the last thing I want to see when I leave here) and I can't waste time any more like I used to be able to. I really want to give a thanks and best-wishes to the members of this board. I've been pissing away company time here for a year and a half and I've come to know and chat with a lot of neat people. I learned a lot about the 929, about riding and racing, and about many other things as well.

So, best of luck and God bless! A few of the members on the board have my cell phone number so I should be easy to contact should anyone need anything.

Re: Time to really start working!

Good riddance.




j/k I've got your cell and will call when I'm coming to The 'Lou.

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Time to really start working!

Good luck ER. Interestingly enough, I was just wondering this morning what was up, as I hadn't noticed anything from you on the board lately.
What just went down with Wal-Mart doesn't have anything to do with you does it?

At any rate, I'll be sure to keep in touch.

Re: Time to really start working!

ER:

I've griefed with you and laughed with you, but I totally understand about your work situation. I'm rammed at work too.

In time, after you've caught up somewhat at work, you will be back.

In the meantime, we'll keep a bench warmed up just for you. Whenever you're comfortable with getting back in the game, come join us. We'll be here.

Cheers mate.

Be fast or be last.

Re: Time to really start working!

Sorry to see you go. But you can always LURK....a post a month is not too much to ask right??

I just started a new job myself so I know how it is...hard to find time to POST and surf around...but...10 mins or so..before you go home? or come in early with some coffee...and lurk around.

no matter what...good luck!

ER, do whatcha gotta do, man. But like AsianImage said, I'm sure you're addicted enough to drop a line every once in a while. Good luck!

No, no, no. This is ER, not Proto.
