    7 years on here now...

    My wife just got a prestigious job at UF, and I'm up for an IT Expert position there... Been many years since I've done the interview thing, but it looks like I'm in the running.

    For the past six months, the new job doesn't allow me to spend as much time in the forum as I would have liked. College days were much better.
    I was recently awarded the "Excellent Performance Award" from my company. The only downside of my new job is that I don't get to code as much as I would have loved to.
    Also the final semester results were out, and apparently I was among the top five rank holders in the university.

    Oh! and also completed 700 posts, and almost 3 years in this forum. Learned a lot here.

    ___EDIT_____
    BTW Does anybody have any idea about the future prospects of BMC Remedy? My next project would require me to learn the application. Was wondering if it would be fruitful in the long run. Have no idea about it yet!

    Guess I should have tried harder, but still it took some hard work. The ranking was among 16000+ students.. Missed the 3rd spot by 0.03 marks .

    Congratulations. My son turns two years old tomorrow (and I turn 44 - same bday) as the Beatles sang "it's getting better all the time" a lot of fun ahead (a few challenges too, but those are negligible)

    30 posts on these forums!! Oh yeah and 2012 will be the year I look back and say that was the year it all changed for me and my dreams started coming true. Last year was good to me too (featuring in a hollywood blockbuster opposite some A listers and got to live in another country for four months during fliming) but not like this year. This is the year so I hope it doesn't end forever in December.

    Indeed, lol :P.

    I'll be coming up on 11 years here in a few months. 12 if you count my original account that I'd forgotten about when I was away for a while for school.

    Turned 25 on Friday, now a quarter century old, which is kind of cool. Looking forward to the amazing things I'll see and experience in the next 25 years.

    I would like to be recognized, awards and all, for having averaged 1 post per year since I became a member.

    Acceptance speech will be next year, of course.
