Job Front: a Bit of Delay

The good news is that I may be working directly under the Director of Engineering. The bad news is that my start date looks like it will be February 22nd, not the 9th as originally verbally suggested. It might mean that they are working on terms outside the original contract offer. I know that I had a couple weeks of delay when I went to work for Quickturn, and that was because my boss was in negotiation for getting me stock options. I can't even speculate, at this point, though. I just want to be able to get back to work.

It looks like my tools background will stand me in good stead. They hope to use me for working on document source control and related. But after two years out of the march of progress, I'm going to have to get up to speed on the current wave of tool technology.
