Home network, one step closer...

Have the 802.11b wireless net set up again. One step closer to restoring the old network. Need broadband back, but it's nice to have my laptop able to roam the house again. Means I can work on stuff in my room now, like writing, and still copy my files and use my notes on the network.

In other news, about the work 'layoff timelines'...apparently management found out about the printing error. They insist it's just a 'worst-case scenario contingency' to present to the board, who are demanding ways to cut costs. Still rather sobering. It's also been two days since I sent in a note to the effect of 'I'm a temporary employee here, I was just offered a permanent position elsewhere, I don't want to leave the company in the lurch but admit the other offer is very attractive, I'd like to discuss my future with the company' to the appropriate people. No reply to the e-mail, no calls from anyone to discuss it. I've been told secondhand via hearsay that someone's trying to get me hired on full-time, but no one has bothered to actually /tell/ me this directly.

Really encourages me to stick around. That other job really /is/ looking better and better...thinking more and more that I should go with it.


The word 'duh' comes to mind. :) Back when Quicksilver brought you back after leaving you LAID OFF for 6 months, you said it was just until you found something else.

Now you've found something -better-; same pay, benefits, a product you love to work on, people you like to work with, and pretty good security for the tech industry. Why are you even considering staying at QS? All of your friends there would be the first to say 'take it'.

So take it.
Rachel, do I have to coem to Seattle and shake you?

Take it!

You don't owe them any loyalty, especially since you always seem to get stressed out by them, have no benefits there right now, they've laid you off before, and then there was that misprinting. The writing on the wall is ten feet tall. Go, go!
