End of an era...

So today, Quicksilver Technologies effectively ceased to be. They are theoretically still in business, but half of the company - including my entire team - got laid off. They didn't even have the money to give us any severance pay, besides $2 for bus fare home. Though we'd been getting some vibes all week, they concealed this from the employees until the last moment.

I am a little worried financially since I just got a car, but I'm not as worried as I could be; I can probably go back to the video game company I used to work for, if worst comes to worst, and there are other companies who were interested and have been trying to hire me...but I'm still a little sad. The Silversmiths were one of the best teams I ever worked with; we were productive, we got along, we all had our own strengths and weaknesses which wove together into a unit which was greater than the sum of its parts.

*sigh*

I'm so sorry, hon. *hug* If there's anything I can do, let me know?

On the plus side, my income tax refund (well, mine and the beast's) arrived, so I'll be able to spend some money...

And I found you another present today, while I was out doing errands. Small comfort, I know, but.
eeeeps! I'm so sorry! let me know if you need /anything/, alright?
HUG

Okay, so that wasn't the most coherent post I've ever made, but I think you know what I mean. I'm here if you need me.
*snuggles* At least you still have that sparkly silver lining in the clouds to look for!

Oy. Big time bummer. Sorry to hear it! :(
Caesar had the Ides of March. We've got the last day of the fiscal quarter.

Don't worry, you've got people that'd be more than happy to snap you up now that you're a free agent again. Think about that with your consolation pizza. ;>
Yoip! :( You're a smart cookie, and if anyone can get a good job in this economy, it's you. Hang in there...
