Oops. I need to flush that sig from the rotation. It's inane.

Thanks, man! The recruiter seems nice, so I'll see how it works out. I still
prefer to stay in research because it's more independent and open-ended. But
it's good to have options to choose from, especially now that I'm getting
fed up with what the management does to the University as they merge two
institutions and construct/demolish building all over the place. And I have
just gotten off the phone. The wages department screwed up payments from
March (incompetently, they just lost all records), so I need to chase people
and resurrect it somehow. Or else I don't get those payments...
