Actually, the chumps for that job in SLC hired somebody else. Sucks to be them.

Wow, congrats Fell.

If anything you get a quick trip to the Seattle area--one of the best places on Earth.

Well, don't get your hopes up *too* much about Seattle. It is still the rainy season, after all.

Isn't it rainy season in Seattle except for one week in June?

Actually the rain ends in about early June and you don't see nary a drop till about October. I just gave away a little-known secret of the Pacific Northwest: Seattle has amazing summers.

Actually, Fell decided to move to  Seattle when we first took him there at age 12. After seeing the city he told us that  when he was grown up he was coming back there to live  because when you do,  "they give you a boat."

I hope he's not disappointed. :)

It went very well. I had four interviews: two of them good, two of them great. I learned more about the job and about the company, and I'm more excited than ever about working there. They have more interviews next week, and then hope to make a decision after that, so we'll see.

Glad to hear the Wizard's interviews went well, Fell. I was thinking about you! I'll keep my fingers crossed.  ;D

Still haven't heard back from Wizards, but I did get another offer today from a local company, matching my previous salary. It will be an excellent plan B if Wizards falls through. Huzzah!
