Great to hear that!!! Sounds like a terrific situation on a nice campus! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy!
...or as you simply put it: Yay!
let there be much rejoicing and consumption of party things!
(and I use some of your parts, btw :)
I'd actually heard of them. Back at Canopus we would worry when a customer would call with an "AlteraFlex" error. Basically they tried to install the wrong drivers for a similarly named product, and we'd have to stay on the phone to walk them through a manual uninstall/reinstall. But who could blame them. Can you tell these two apart?
DVRex RT Professional.
"I'm a professional, so I must have the RT Professional." (later) "Hello, Support? What's an 'AlteraFlex' error mean?"
So where IS this beautiful campus of theirs?
WooHoo! Rat's got a job!! You GO, Nick!
(Btw, ever watch "Gary The Rat?"
Sweet! Congratulations! :)

Great news Rat-in-law! Soon you will also be a best selling author and all will be splendid!
Now, once I either win the lottery or finish my novel we'll get you guys and your folks to come up for the holidays and go play in the snow.

Woo! Congrads... Sometimes, kind of makes me wish I'd stayed in the bay... :>
OK, so the 65 minute commute doesn't. Heh...
Good luck, though.
Good going! I'm glad for you!
Congratulations! Or, as a former co-worker of mine used to say with his Tibetan accent, "You are the mackdaddy! Right?"
Congratulations. I'm super happy for ya.
Thank you all for your kind congratulations! The encouragementment and support from you, my friends, has been very helpful while I've been dealing with unemployment. Thanks.
Ooooh, this is good news :) Well, cept for the commute, but heck.
