Doing the got-a-job happy dance

Today I go in to sign an offer letter for a new job. I even will get a slight raise out of this. And there was much rejoicing!

The interesting part is that I got this job because I wrote Trebuchet, pretty much. It's a position maintaining and updating a TCL/Tk GUI front end for EDA software. (chip design validation, more or less.) Apparently good TCL/Tk coders are hard to find, and I had this nice code that I could actually _show_ to them to prove my worth.

I think this is the third job I've gotten on the strength of my open source coding projects. So maybe open source projects don't make me money directly, but they _do_ pay in the long run!

Imagining Got-a-job happy dance...
Is that anything like the... "Nay-say this all you pessimists dance" - ppphpphphpphtttttttttt!

Seriously though, well done. To those who work cometh reward and it matters not what the work is...

...So, are you on the night shift? :P

Naw, I haven't many naysayers to worry about. I was just using artistic license with regards to the happy-dance of Snoopy's from the comic strip Peanuts.

And no, dangit, they actually want me there, awake and alert, during the day. Hmph.
