Maidrite

Please keep Maidrite (James) in your thoughts and prayers. He begins 10 months of intensive CAD training on Monday. He will be eating, breathing, and sleeping computers for the next 10 months. He is really looking forward to finally getting started.

Thanks everyone! I don't know how soon James will be able to check in here, but I'll let him know everyone is rooting for him. He has been so busy getting ready for classes that he hasn't had time to do more than check in and read a few posts. But I keep him up-to-date.

Thanks! Yesterday was orientation and today is his first class. I told him he will probably be frustrated at the end of the first day because he will want the teacher to teach everything he knows in the first day! James said I'm probably right!
