Yeah, I'm not dead, just uber-busy first with transitioning to my job at IKEA, and now I got an even better job at Comcast as a Network Engineer for their corporate network in West Chester. I'm so excited about this new job! Now it's time to move! Anyone need a house in Northeast Philly? Rolling Eyes

Haha, seconded.

As for your house, Al, you may want to consider keeping/renting it until analysts have a clue where the market is going.

In case anyone is interested, or knows anyone, Comcast is obvously growing and we do have plenty of positions open in various network engineer and network monitoring positions (among others too of course).

I knew a guy who was an accountant there. I sounded like the sweetest job, all the discount cable he could wish for.

Network monitoring? You mean they pay people to watch all the pron go through the tubes?

The monitoring and engineer jobs are for the internal side of Comcast, so not much chance of boobage there Sad

FYI, Comcast is leasing the building next to where I work in Newark as a new call center. It's supposed to be a 7x24 operation of around 1800 people. Yikes.

The building used to be occupied by a credit card operation belonging to what eventually became part of Bank of America (pre-MBNA buyout). It has been vacant for about a year now, so this is good to see.

Hopefully they will pick up some slack from the downsizing that has occured at MBNA.

That a pretty big NOC.

Didn't BoA buy out MBNA? My statements all say BoA now.

We're now piloting (so far successfully) Virtual Call Center Agents that work from home. Those that qualify get a small firewall over their Comcast high speed Internet with their Comcast Digital Voice with a VPN back to corporate and can be on call with flexible hours and no facilities cost to Comcast.

Yeach, BoA did buy out MBNA, my UD MBNA Mastercard was turned into a BoA Amex card witout me even knowing it!
