Today is my last day of work.

Start packing tomorrow, move next week and start the new job on the Ides of March. (Should I take that as a sign?)

Just want to thank everyone and say an official good bye (hopefully not permanent), I'm not sure how much more posting will go on for the next week or so and am definitely not sure once I start at the new job. Hopefully I can get my home computer running again.

Its been fun goofing off with all of you and learning from you the past 2 years.

Enjoy your last day of work! Wonder if all the trailer park people will miss you?

Good luck with the move, and see you in about a week or so. Don't forget the Garrison!

Best wishes, donk.

As you leave that horrendous place, remember the wise man who said "Don't look over your shoulder, somebody might be gaining on you!" and get the h3ll out of there as quick as possible.

I expect you'll continue to find ways to visit Cyburbia, which we all know is the greatest "professional resource" in urban planning ;-)

WOW... a week? I was out of Reading the 6 hours after I walked out of city hall for the final time. Granted I stayed at the Ex's house an hour away.... But I wanted to wash my hands of that place as soon as possible.

Find an internet cafe and drop by during your drive, eh? I hope it all goes well and we will see you back here soon.

Hope all goes well, and that we'll see you back here soon.

Tell your new boss that you are an integral part of the throbbing brain, I'm sure he'll understand... :)

As always, best of luck donk....even though the liklihood of me ever seeing that Garrison from you just decreased exponentially. ;)

Best of luck during the move, and don't take the Ides as a bad sign--it's just another day, according to the dictionary (although beware of people named Brutus, just in case).

well it is just after 4:30 here, one last trip to load the car and I am officially a man of leisure for 2 weeks.

Michaelskis, I'd love to be all organized to leave, but the joys of home ownership makes that one difficult. The move will also occur in 2 steps, first to my parent's then to Ontario.

Cardinal, while where I am going is better than here, I doubt they have internet cafes. I am pretty sure they have an access centre though.

This is the official cold turkey/last call at the bar post.

Start the new job on Monday, I was able to find an internet source the next town over (not "next door" fortunately). Also due to a volunteer position I was roped into/volunteered for I'll be getting a new computer and high speed line once I find a place to live. That is one of my last tasks to do.

The past 2 weeks have been great, veging out, meeting women (and I thought that having none was difficult, juggling is worse)

I'll hopefully have enough vacation time for the up coming international laefest.

I'll post as soon as I can.

But that's the kind of problem you want to have, isn't it? :-D
