Last Day

This may come as a suprise, but today is my last day at General Dynamics Land Systems. I’ve worked here 17 weeks and 2 days now, and haven’t had any real task to work on yet. I’ve had a PC for four weeks now though. Also, the company has renigged on the relocation agreement, so that hasn’t endeared me to them.

Starting Monday, I’ll be working at a company that does both defense and commercial work. They are located on the northwest side of Indianapolis. I’m looking forward to working there, since I’ll have actual work to do. Apparently I’m going to be maintaining some missile emulation software for Navy attack helicopters. I’m sure that is still subject to change though, so we’ll see.

Anyway, no more fridgid northern hinterlands for us, we’re headed back to sunny Indiana on Wednesday (heh).

  1. Stop on by sometime. I’m on the NE side.

  2. Congrats! If you need some help in Indy, I’m downtown.

  3. Erm, Dave…we’re on the NE side too, aren’t we? =)

  4. heh, yeah. Good work dave. The company is on the NE side. Honest.

  5. FYI:

    Elizabeth and I are also moving to Indianapolis. We don’t have our own blog, so please forgive the piggy-back.


  6. you know, if you two wanted to give blogging another crack, you could always have a blog here at notblog for each of you, or one to share… It doesn’t get better than free. (and spam free also, at the moment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Is it a safe assumption, then, that congratulations are in order?

  8. Aye, tis safe John. (:

  9. Awesome! I was starting to worry about the location of Gamefest this year, but methinks that it is no longer an issue. So, how about a date?

  10. Oh, and by the way, congrats to both you and Jerry. That’s important, too. But so is Gamefest. Okay, I’ll stop digging now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Dave-

    I’ve actually been thinking about giving blogging anouther crack. We’ll talk later. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Gamefest 2005-

    We thought about gamefest while we were shopping for a house (as sad as that is). Our new house is as least as good as our old one for hosting gamefest. In many ways it is better (bigger family room, deck, porch, non-gravel driveway). Details will be posted later, but we are excited about hosting again unless someone has a problem with that ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Huzzah for balmy Indiana!
    Congratulations, and all that jazz.

  13. I’ll be in Indy Feb 3-9. We should do something.

    And yeah, grats on getting a job that’s not super-desperation, and that doesn’t have (hopefully) a horrid commute.

    And also, you know, to jerry and liz, on getting off that sinking ship.

  14. Thanks Nagi!

    It would be great to see you that week and if you need a place to stay our new house is always open for you.

    If they get the house they are looking at Dave will be less than 15 min from work (I think), and 10 min from me ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I hope you get that house, we saw the picture and it is beautiful! Can’t wait to see you!

  16. Sweet! I’ll have to look you guys up next time I’m in town. If you ever visit College Park, make sure to say hi to my Mom.

  17. what service does she go to?

    I look for her; lately we have gone to 2nd.

  18. She’s Mom, so I’m guessing whatever one’s so early that it’s actually forbidden by the Ten Commandments to be up that early.

    You guys are making me really hope I can get an Indy job after grad school.

  19. Hope this works out better, Dave.

    I got a new job, too! Moving to Arkansas on Tuesday. Anyone who cares can look up the info in the online alumni directory.
