Stuff: Unemployed

I suddenly find myself out of a job, now that my employer has trimmed its workforce by 25%. While that theoretically leaves more time to post, more likely it will just make me less inclined to -- not that I'm posting all that faithfully now. So don't expect much here for the next while...

Ack! I take it this was unexpected...

Very. Not only were the 20 layoffs themselves unexpected, but a number of people have said they're really surprised that I was one of them -- after all, I was the most senior developer there. There are some systems there where I was the only remaining person who knew how they worked.

I don't anticipate this being good for the company. Gotta roll over my stock options quickly...

Sorry to hear the news as well.

Still reading here, even if I don't say much. So, keep posting when the mood strikes! :)

Your photos are fabulous. I'm really enjoying them. Hope the job search is going well.

james, the Wheeler Needle Works is mentioned in the 1987 novel "in the skin of a lion" by Michael Ondaatje. i'm currently rereading it for the third time, and googled the name to see if it was in fact, a real factory. good photos, all of them, but that one is really evocative, based on story line of the book. thanks again.
