Waiting: So I'm waiting to hear back from WebFirst, a small company in Rockville. Sounds like interesting work, and I'd get to do a little more development than I've been used to in previous jobs. I know my references are pretty good (Thanks Kurt, Yazz, Steve Westmoreland), so I don;t see it as being a problem. I just want to start working ASAP.

If that doesn;t work out, I've got a contract doing some code and architecture review for a company that does software for a few large telecommunications companies. So that could pan out to be kind of lucrative, but the deal hasn;t been signed yet, and I'll find out more tomorrow on that. It sucks that I can have such a sterling resume, and have a difficult time finding a job. I think its because of my location. Too much gummint work here in Maryland. And no company is willing to sponsor Gummint Clearance nowadays, takes too long, and you lose money paying someone to sit on the bench for 3-18 months while the process happens. 2 years ago, no problem. This year, no way. *sigh*
