As of Monday June 30, 2003 at 5:00 PM It's been a good run... 5 years and 1 month as net-admin/user support for a small family owned company. As they say... All good things come to an end. The downsizing and layoffs actually began March 2001. Between then and now staff has been reduced from around 120 to 6 (me included). Frankly I'm amazed that they kept me around as long as they did. Do you know how little there is to do with only 5 users to take care of. The good news... Really nice severence package plus up to 39 weeks of unemployment. By my calculations I won't HAVE to work until early in 2005. With any luck at all the economy will pick up a little by then and companies will be hiring IT staff. D@MN... I suspect that this is going to have a really NEGATIVE impact on the HT upgrade budget... On the flip side I've got plenty of time to enjoy what's here!!!
