I finally have some good news to show for all the crap I've been through: In about a week I'll be taking off from Israel and landing in this beautiful place in Norway where I'll be doing a 1-2 months consulting gig on a .Net project.
If anything, I'm pretty excited (and I haven't been sleeping much either) and thrilled to do this (and yes, a little afraid as well since it's my first real gig as a consultant).
If all goes well I might even get to stay a while longer, but that's too far in the future to see right now. My wife will be coming to visit me there about two weeks after I leave home. We'll spend there about a week together at which time she'll go back home and I'll be Wifeless up until the end of January. Oh, I can just taste the adventure now.
BTW, they are still looking for good experienced people to get over there for short/long term. If you're interested, contact Michael and tell him I sent you.
And to finish this off - here's are some thumbnails from over there:
(The one with the man at the table is taken where I'll probably be staying. Isn't that just totally crazy?)
