I wish you good luck on the reentry (there's a pun there... aerospace).*Bill: Thank you! It's an *uphill* battle. When the right Manager sees something on my resume that he/she needs for a project, it'll click.* My wife and I are fans of the Space Shuttle program* and we were at KSC to watch* a launch of Atlantis on 19 May 2000, when she was pregnant.* Reentry is difficult!* Launch is also incredibly dangerous. On TV, it looks almost routine....
Having been a mushroom... er software/systems and many related for a
long time, I know whereof you speak. That's what prompted me to add the
adjectives and the attempt at humor.*I read something in an IEEE publication, about 2 years ago, that I gave to a high school boy who lives in our subdivision, who was interested in going into Engineering, about why someone would go into Engineering, when they could become a doctor or lawyer or some other profession, with more stability and respect than Engineers frequently get.. This is way OT for the CentOS list... Lanny
