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.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
