    I'm open to it for the right job/price.

    Technically i'm a Sr Systems Programmer, but I call my self an Operational Tools Developer. I'm spent 10+ of my almost 14 years at AOL working in Operations teams writing tools to improve the day to day work flow of the Sys Admins and Analysts. It ranges anywhere from automating simple tasks to integrating 3rd party products to building large scale applications.

    Anyone that is interested can see the nitty-gritty stuff at http://www.linkedin.com/in/iamgnat

    Well as of an hour ago or so, i've verbally accepted an offer. It's local, so no moving to mess with and the best part is that it is a Mac job so it will be all Mac all the time for me

    So now I can focus on CFE for a bit while I wait to start the new job. I'll try to knock out as much as I can since my free time will go down with the new job (longer commute, getting started, etc..) for awhile.

    Thanks again for everyones thoughts and offers to help.

    Thanks guys. It actually looks like my start date could come as early as next week

    I want to get back to work, but it would have been nice to enjoy some time (starting tomorrow it's my mother-in-law ) without the "oh god I need a job!!!" feeling

    Oh well.

    I just finished fixing the bugs in the new button code that have been driving me up the wall so should have screen shots of them in AMP pretty soon. Hopefully then I can knock out checkboxes and drop downs before I start the new job. Then we can have config screeens

    It's official. The paperwork is signed and my start date is the 3rd

    I've been working on getting check boxes working which has caused me to re-write most of button code I just did (the guy I borrowed the code from made a good start, but missed some major things when you want to apply it to other button styles). I am almost done though, just a text issue for Radio Buttons and an image problem for Disclosure (the triangles) buttons.

    bpwnd has provided button icons, so after I get the buttons all happy i'll get those added in so everyone can take a look.

    Hopefully i'll get all this knocked out this week and get a new version out to you before I start the new job.

    Thanks,

    As expected, the new job isn't leaving much time to play with CFE. Between the hours i'm working and the commute time, i'm not really interested in going down to the Mac for more than to check my email when I get home. The timing also means I have much less time to spend with my wife.

    So until I get my MBP (was planning on late Dec/early Jan, but now with the new Intel processors...) I probably won't spend any real time on CFE. If you guys find anything major though, i'll do my best to get it knocked out for you.

    Thanks,
    -dave

    P.S. The new job doesn't allow IMs, so those of you that do have my AIM SNs, that's why i'm not online.

    I think we have a cricket problem around here...

    No issues? Nothing? Come on, there has to be something. I'm not that good!

    As of 5pm this past Friday I officially am no longer an AOL employee And they were nice enough to pay out my vacation and severance with my last check rather than sometime next month like the agreement said (not complaining ).

    So the portion of that money that was ear marked for a personal MBP has now been spent and I should hopefully see it by the end of the week Hopefully i'll find enough time over x-mas (only two days for the first time in 14 years ) to fix the couple of issues that i've noticed, the iTunes features that were promised but haven't come about, and start working on some surprises

    I really need to get my setup rebuilt on my desk to run tests of different things while I'm doing the audio portion of my car. I'm sure I'll mess some stuff up and have some wishlist items.
