Glad to hear school is going as well as your quit! :) Things on my end are going about as well as can be. I'm still working for the same company, surprisingly enough, although the owner is still looking to sell so I've been working on my backup plan. I'd really like to get in to IT, so I'm starting at the bottom and getting ready to try to work my way up. I'm trying to home study for the A+ Certification exam, which is vendor neutral (i.e. not geared specifically towards Windows, Cisco, Linux, etc.). Once I complete certification I'm hoping to be able to get in the door somewhere and work on some more certifications, eventually be a network admin. or something along those lines. It's something I enjoy and I'm kind of tired of taking jobs just to say I have one and pay the bills. ;)
My manager is quit, again. Last time he quit for about six months and then failed and kept using for the remainder of 2006. Then he tried again in January. Failed once about a week in, got back up, dusted himself off and hasn't looked back since. Last time I talked to him he said he has no intention of ever going back. Good man! The other guy I work with really cut back and hardly uses at all anymore. Once in a while, here and there, so life there has gotten much easier on a former user.
Yes, Carylene hit the nail on the head. I think both terms are used loosely, but her definition is right on.
Well - take care and stay strong all! Good chatting with you again BFS! :)
