I was contacted over the holidays by a company I've worked with in my current position and they offered me a job with them at a much better salary and much shorter commute. I've just committed to take them up on the offer after negotiating a raise for myself 8) , so I'll be starting there in a few weeks.

I'm not sure how this will affect my current activity level of near-twenty-four-seven forum monitoring, since I will be out at job sites a lot more and less able to just pop up a browser window to check in on things.
However, with the shorter commute (15 mins instead of 1 hour), I should have more free time to build after work and will hopefully still be able to reply to people promptly either after work or via my phone.

The increased salary (34% raise!) should also enable me to feed my habit more than adequately, so I'm pretty excited! :D

I'll keep you all posted as to how things are going once I'm switched over. Wish me luck!

Man that's awesome. Congratulations on all the new job entails. Those long commutes are killer, and getting as much free time as possible will more than make up for it.

34% is a substantial amount. Can't wait to see all the good deals you will be posting in the B/S/T forum :D
