The Alameda company made me an offer I couldn't refuse. (Slightly less base, but the bonus more than makes up for it. Oh yeah, people in private industry often get bonuses. ;))
Might start as soon as Monday.
I like this opportunity - the boss man and I see pretty much eye to eye, the environment is a little nutty but the group isn't, and there's a chance to use my current powers (both tech and Process Geek) For Good as well as learn some new good (and marketable) stuff.
Still doing my noon thing because it's too close to cancel, but I am definitely not going to San Ramon this afternoon or SF tomorrow. (So Mags, we might be able to do something. I'll call.)
And I don't have to worry about these messages on my voicemail so much (a number of which are probably multiple agencies chasing down the same position anyway). Will send folks the "thank you for your assistance" message - it's useful to be polite in case I need them again in the future ;).
