Being unemployed and moving away from Columbia and all has given me a chance to sit back and take stock of my life. I want to thank the Missouri crew (or militia, or whatever they want to call us this week) for being a big part of why I'm so happy right now. I flunked the bar exam, I owe a crapload of money, I have no job, yet I'm the happiest I've been in years, possibly my entire life. I've no money to speak of but I'm a rich man. A guy is lucky to find friends like you all.

Well, Duke, I for one feel the same way as you...

You were the first person I met off of AR15.com - Missouri, and you made me feel very welcome...
having just moved here from Dallas...

I take it the town you live in doesn't have a Domino's Pizza, because you can make big bucks delivering Pizza Pies...
I used to average $2.50 a pie in tips in Dallas...

Seriously, have you found anything locally that might generate some subsistence???

Duke, I have only met you once (the last MoDCC shoot), but you seem like a good guy.

I also enjoyed meeting other members there as well. Everyone seems to be very nice, and I am looking foward to more MoDCC matches/get togethers to get to know people even better.

Alas, I am down here in huntin' country, and AR-ers are few and far between. It seems worth the 4 hour trip up to Columbia to be with defensive-minded folk...

Duke, we love you too... In a manly way that is, umm... you know what I mean.
I am glad I know ya dude, you definitely add interest in our get togethers and you are the only shyster... mouthpiece... lawyer I have any respect for.
If you need any help let me know, I can't do much but I can at least help a little.

Mousegun87,

Are you a software guy or a hardware guy? If software IM me especially if know anything about workflow, pub/sub, and java jms. I might know of something.

==============================================
Duke - you're a lucky guy. Got a pretty girl, house in the country, digital camera, and time to clean your guns. Enjoy it while it lasts!

MissouriBob,

I am mostly software, my experience is R&D in computational intelligence (fuzzy logic, neural networks, pattern recognition, data clustering, image recognition things like that) ... not the usual computer stuff. Now I understand why it is much easier to get a job with a BS degree than it is with a PhD degree. Unless, I am willing to move to Silicon Valley .... NOT!

Thanks Bob

Have you tried Garmin(of GPS fame)in Lenexa KS?
They are always hireing hardware/lowlevel/embedded type programers for all their gps stuff.

Thanks Bano, didn't know Garmin is in Lenexa ... will give it a shot.

Well, if you decide to want to give a try to the more mundane and less cool things let me know. The shop I work in does distributed computing, service oriented access, J2EE container based computing, code generation, and distributed software management for a 10,000,000 transaction a day environment. We are always looking for top end folks.

Bob,

thank you. I will include you in my list. I am not picky in what job I will take. Thanks again.
