As per expected, I have been let go from my company as of the end of my previous assignment. My frustration with them was growing to unhealthy levels in the past few weeks, and I'm sure this is the best solution. The only bad part is that I have lots-o-taxes to pay and I just partied away quite a few resources (as well as brain cells) at GothCon. I'm still in NOLA as I post this very message.
I don't expect to be out of work for long (famous last words). Anyone need to hire a server-side Java developer?
