    well it's only my second day, but I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes.. hell, I might even be really sad and start a blog. Eww!

    Yes I do google - I like their easy-access maps and I use them for adsense, although I might switch that to Overture/Yahoo search marketing later. Probably I'll run them side by side and see which performs best over a month period... or something...

    Yeah - I think the Yahoo! blokes here know about my Devshed (lack of) life

    What kind of requirements did they have on your position, what was the interview process like, etc etc?

    And where are yahoo offices located, anyways?
