Well, the good news is that I was finally recognized by my company and was given a promotion and raise. I get a company car, and will be working remotely in the field. I have been trying to get this promotion for 2 years and the company has been resistant to hire from within for this position. I have been passed over 4 times before and this time they offered it to me.<br />
<br />
The bad news? I will not be around as much. As I will be out doing inspections and working remotely I will not be in front of a computer all day so my posting will be limited to evenings when I will likely be tired......<br />
<br />
The money will be nice, fund more upgrades and new computers (maybe I can afford a Core 2 Quad next year afterall LOL)<br />
<br />
Anyway, just wanted to share my good news, I am really shocked, I was all set to be ticked off at being passed over again and then they offer it to me today at 4PM.

congratulations <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> i know what it's like to work for a company that hires from the outside instead of promoting from within, now you can show them how wrong they've been all these years instead of giving you the job in the first place.

Grats, remember that overclock.net, even though we all want to be, can not feed our family and give us money to live/upgrades.<br />
<br />
Its best to put your job first.<br />
<br />
Well done <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
