Bill: Thank you! It's an *uphill* battle. When the right Manager sees
something on my resume that he/she needs for a project, it'll click.  My
wife and I are fans of the Space Shuttle program  and we were at KSC to
watch  a launch of Atlantis on 19 May 2000, when she was pregnant.  Reentry
is difficult!  Launch is also incredibly dangerous. On TV, it looks almost
routine....

I read something in an IEEE publication, about 2 years ago, that I gave to a
high school boy who lives in our subdivision, who was interested in going
into Engineering, about why someone would go into Engineering, when they
could become a doctor or lawyer or some other profession, with more
stability and respect than Engineers frequently get.. This is way OT for the
CentOS list... Lanny
