Thanks guys. I'm really excited for the new position
The company owners approached me as I was not actually looking for a job.
I had been designing for this company as an independent designer for a few years now and always liked working with their team of engineers and they liked working with me
the owners seemed very excited when we came to an agreement on terms,,, as was I
looking forward to,,, well ,,,hmmm holiday pay, vacation pay / time, retirement package, working less hours,,, all the sh*t I've been missing out on for the past 13-14 years lol
would not change anything over the years , even the hard times because thats what makes a person who they are

and I plan to still be an active member here and still building stuff, so not really going anywhere as far as the internet is concerned lol
