Well, it happened on the last day of the year. I was in talks with a company in Scottsdale through the holiday and finally accepted their offer on the 31st. And although most of my effort was focused on the Austin area, I'm more than happy to move west instead of east.
Thanks to those who held out a helping hand. It was partly because of this community that I had looked so hard in Austin. You are a great group of folks.
One of the things I did for the job search was to put together a website to help in my search. (Un?)Fortunately, I wasn't able to utilize this tool. However, for those still looking and desiring to build a site of your own, here's the link to help you think through what you want. I'm also accepting comments on the site to make it better. You can see it at www.kevindevries.com.
Thanks again for your "hospitality".
