    Status of CFE

    I have been working on it, though I think i'm going to rip out most of my changes as they are not working as i'd like and i've been dragging my feet on getting them working.

    CFE will be on a hiatus for awhile though for me as after 13.5 years AOL has finally decided to include me in a layoff. So starting tomorrow, finding a new job will obviously be the most important thing on my agenda. I'll still try to check in at least once a day or so and will work on CFE when I can, just no promises for awhile.

    I disagree. I have seen AOL from it's peak to it's current low and have a lot of respect for many of the people that have walked through it's doors. The real problem was/is Time Warner. I believe Steve had a brilliant idea in purchasing them and we should have met his vision of creating (or at least taking it to levels not yet seen) a new medium for content integration and delivery. Unfortunately he did not bargain for how backwards and non-visionary TW's execs were and was no where near savvy enough to compete with them.

    For the most part the company has been good to me for well over a decade (and almost half my life ), but for a long time i've been unhappy with where the company was going and it's lack of any clue how to fix itself. I do not regret my time there, but it's long since time that I move on and find new challenges.

    And I feel sorry for many of the people I now leave behind as things always go further downhill after the layoffs

    I know it all sounds sappy but that's how I feel about it all

    Now to find a Mac programming job with no real experience

    ...PM me if you know much about web programming (HTML, PHP, CSS, JS, etc.). I work at a web development company that is looking for a reliable contractor.

    Wow, sorry to hear about work! That sucks... I'm graduating soon so applying to jobs has sucked up more time than I expected. Good luck!
