    Default Hiatus from PL...

    Mixedgas is taking three summer online classes towards on a Master's degree.. My University employer just announced 40 million in cuts, and only those who strive to improve shall remain. More so, most of those shall be on the science/engineering side. Two hundred some staff layoffs were already announced. I'm clear of that because I'm involved in our new institutional focus area. Thus the command to take part of the Masters.

    I have funding till next the start of next year, but I have to demonstrate to no less then the President of the large institution that I am a valuable employee, even as a lowly technician. I was hired on probationary status with his permission to fix some problems. I don't work directly for him, but he reviews every new hire and their progress. Therefore, until I can get my classes caught up, and the design of a scanner amp done, I'm off PL for the next five to six weeks..

    If you need me, and that means really need me, I will check PMs ONCE PER WEEK at the most, and most will be ignored. So Sorry for that, but..... Otherwise Laserwizardry knows how to reach me and will be "Screening my calls" so to speak.

    Right now, everybody is screaming for my time, and I'm covering for two professors out on sabbatical. Lifes a witch, but I have to do this...


    The on-line, discussion based, courses sink more far time then actual classroom time.


    Prayers appreciated... Its crunch time...

    [B]Buffo,[/B] as for Selem, who knows, if I can come, it will be on 24 hours notice and I'm more then likely to just want to set in a swimming pool, or float on down a river in peace...

    Silvershot, I do have calls into Pango.... And you are on my mind....


    If your PMs are being ignored, there is a reason,,,

    While I appreciate the desire to just sit in or by the pool.... you "really" want to be poking your head around in the auditorium and, the Club this year. In particular, this year...

    Hope classes go well!

    That's the signature.... not meant for you. It's a bit of a joke since I seem to have this err..... "reputation" for buying a lot of stuff and " PM sent " appears in so many of the buy/sell and groupbuy threads. I'm probably going to change it to something else.
