1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I might feel fairly compensated if I were making double my current salary.

    As a New York State taxpayer I approve the doubling Conne's salary.

    Just take away his raises and pension.

    My day spun out of control a little bit this morning: I read a long journal article that wasn't what I was hoping it would be based on the abstract, but I am stubborn and so I read it to the end. That diverted my thoughts from the ideas I'm trying to write about. But then I took a bath and fell asleep in the tub (which happens sometimes), and now I am ready to write again.

    You could get a very serious injury and go on disability.

    You could become a drug kingpin.

    I don't think that's the kind of job you retire from. You either get killed or go to prison.

    True. Plus it seems to take a lot of hustle, long hours, and weekends, all things Stitchy does not seem to desire in his career.

    If I stay in government I won't be able to retire with full pension until 62. The good old days of checking out at 55 are over. :(

    I might be able to retire at 50 with where I am now - it's a goal of mine actually to be able to, regardless of whether or not I actually do. It will be with a diminished income from where I am now, of course, but maybe that's ok

    I will be very lucky if I can stop working at 65. I predict I'll still work just at a less stressful job.

    I'm pretty sure I will be working until I croak. Maybe if we sell my dad's company I can live out my days as a man of leisure, but I don't see that happening.
