Hey -

Welcome aboard - sounds like you're doing well on the road to ER. So well, in fact, would you consider adopting? I'm a 50 year old, balding cheapskate, well behaved (except for the beer), willing to help around the house. ;-)

Stay Cheap!
-Jeff Yeager

My job right now doesn't utilize it that much. But hope to be using it in the future.
