On the bright side young people have little to worry
about. Your body isn't starting to wear out and the
corporations know you'll make huge sacrifices support
your family.

Once you become senior, then make sure that every
penny you get in raise, goes into savings. Because
nowadays "senior" is an acronym for "cost". Companies
now have no concern for quality as evidenced by the
many products I've bought just to toss them in the trash.
I now shop for some stuff at yard sales and other
"reseller" places. Buying new is a waste of effort,
fuel, and cash (technology items are especially a
double-edged sword). But, to buy a house, I've been
saving all extra cash and living very modestly. That
alone is my saving grace. Build extra protection into
your savings!

Take care all.

To all:

It is with sincere regret that I must announce that
I am forced to withdraw as developer for Source-Mage.

Due to the recent economic downturns I have been
summarily dismissed from my job of 19 years 8 months
as a Simulator Engineer for Alaska Airlines. Since I'm
no longer a strapping young lad, I've fewer options. I
will be cutting costs to an absolute minimum, as well
as focusing my attention on survival on both a local
and global basis.

I will try to drop in from time to time.

May God bless those of you with faith.

I am disheartened to hear this Dale. :( While I was looking forward to
your work on SMGL, that is only for fun, your job is a much larger loss.

Thank you for the time and thought you volunteered while you could and
I wish you success in your search for another job. Know that you will
always be welcome here, as you have time, even if only to say hello. :)
