I just received an unofficial (but well-informed) warning earlier this week that I need to start seriously looking for a new position, either within The Very Large Computer Corporation or elsewhere. I have the inside track on a choice position with my old employer, but nothing is for certain. I must pretend that it doesn’t exist and continue on.
Oddly enough, I’m not worried at all.
In the meantime, I came across another photo I took of Atomic Annie. I think I also took a picture of the whole thing, but I didn’t scan it, and all those photos are in a box in a garage out in California now.
