Curiosity- whatever happened at your old shop? Did they lay off lots of people? If you had not jumped ship would your position still be there?

Talked to the last remaining little indian in IT. They still have not told him anything. But other departments like finance are getting smaller and smaller every day. Chiefs and Indians being shown the door little by little.

Ha. The guitar world list had him losing to eddie van halen in the final four. Wanna be more saddened? I had no idea who he was...till I saw your post. Now i have a pretty good guess.

oh, and that one little indian? He checks one daily process to ensure that it ran. Other thsn that, he has no work to do all day. Nice work if you can get it, but definitely has an end date approaching even if mgt is not telling him when .

Jimmy Page is pretty amazing. I've heard countless covers of "Rock 'n' Roll," including Heart's, and while they usually are very good, you can hear the lead guitarist take shortcuts in the lead guitar line b/c they cant' do what he did.
I imagine Jimmy, Jimi, Brian, and Eric would think this is just a silly debate and that you can't compare one artist to another objectively.
It's alot like the stupid debates, we have in sports....like, Is Lebron the best player on the PLANET???....Better than Michael???...Kobe????...lol... .Best QB in this Solar System???

Friend, mechanical engineer, got word early this year that he was going to be laid off in April. HE started looking for a new job. Then they told him it would be July. Before his job ended, he found his dream job (medical device enngineering), with an easy commute to boot. So it really worked out for the best for him.

IT gets even sillier when they try to compare athletes from completely different eras of a sport, with different rules, playing styles, etc.

Like today's pitchers in baseball -- they don't compare to the pitchers from 40+ years ago who were throwing a lot more pitches in every game, with less break time between games.
