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.
