Christopher grabbed me at the end of the day today. In short, they want a programming instructor that has the .Net certs working full time. I want to get the .Net certs (I've finally come to terms with the fact that six months of training is somehow more valuable than four years of college), but the idea of working there full time gets to be.

However, there was some compensation provided in this offer. "I can't tell you what the actual salary offer will be, but it's substantial. You could put half the money in a bank and never touch it, and live quite comfortably off the other half."

There's something about dollar signs that make unpalatable things palatable.




I had my first conversation with an internet friend today. The only other net friend I've ever had contact with was Shannon, and she was someone that was a friend of a fleshside friend. I've never had any non-intarweb contact with someone that I exclusively knew online.

At any rate, the willing victim was miusheri, who's a great deal of fun. She's a programmer geek who plays in both the mostly defunct starshiplj and the active and awesome (not just 'cause I'm one of the honchos) ljsim.

She counts as good people.
