Lots of luck Hoot! Himself has been looking for 21 months and counting - the swamp isn't the only dismal place in the country, employment-wise. Got my fingers crossed and I'll add your name to Himself's when I pray for a job offer - seeing as how even though he's in IT also you guys aren't in the same job market.

Not yet, but I expect they will take their time.

LOL I got a couple of tattoos, but they are in discreet places. And I got everything pierced that I will likely ever need. Thanks all!

A quick update. The job went to a fine gentleman. He has had years of experience and I can understand why they chose him. On the plus side, I have an opportunity to teach a few courses at the local community college as an adjunct instructor. The classes will start in October.
