So yeah, I'm switching jobs.

I'll leave the specifics off this post, since I don't believe in trusting my privacy and anonymity to livejournal's friends-only protections, but I'm moving from a position at ISP A to ISP B, getting a nice raise and better benefits, and going back to a driving commute after several years back on the bus/walk/bike plan.

I do feel a bit guilty about getting a better job when so many people are struggling to keep theirs, but that's because I'm a pathetic bleeding heart leftist who grew up kinda poor and doesn't feel like he does enough to make the world a better place.

My last day at this job is Friday.  I just backed up all my personal stuff off of the work laptop -- that made stuff seem more real somehow.  I start at ISP B on Tuesday.

I'm going out drinking with coworkers after work on Wednesday, hit me for details if you want to join (even if you don't work with me) but need info.
