Things aren't as awful right now, and the job situation is ok for a bit longer (September). In fact, I may get final approval for a year-long position soon, if things work out.

Me too. I haven't had the heart to continue. I was very disappointed in the last few months worth of work. It was getting confusing for me (and I have lots of notes) and I was losing track of the simple story that I started with. Every time I'd start a new issue, I'd give up and later delete it. Got to be depressing, so I stopped.

The company has actually been supportive, helping me look inside the company and outside at other companies for jobs. The problem has been the market in my area, I live in a fairly rural section near a Navy base, so all the jobs surround the base and the market has been ugly lately. The other issue is all the stuff I've built up here, vacation, 401K, sick leave, seniority, etc.
Anyway, I'm still around, still checking the toonbots board and working on other stuff. Maybe I'll start another comic... maybe I'll redo FS. I don't know... Thanks for thinking of me.
