Thanks everyone. Got some clarification this morning, so it's a couple months, not just a week before we find out exactly what happens and where everyone goes. I am currently the Server admin for the project that I haven't named but people have made remarkably accurate guesses about, so they'll keep me around for a bit at least to get the heavy servers moved from one facility to a different one, all 20 of the damned things (we ironically just brought in new hardware so we have the new and the old ones still on site) So i might get 3 months out of it before decision. No one really knows whats happening at this point, or where money is coming from. All everyone can agree about is that the project is officially dead.

This is the "other" bridge. The bigger but inherently more siesmically unstable one on that same interstate to the south.

Take out the old bridge before the shutdown gets too far along. They'll have to go forward with the project at that point.
Well seeing as "I" at least read the siesmic and structural report, unlike certain senators who should be beaten with an iron stick, that would actually be a scarily feasable project. Just visualize what would happen if you took a 300 foot tall tower designed to hold 50 tons of concrete and piled oh, I dunno, 9 times that much or so, and this tower is basicaly easily hittable by Semi trucks or people with metal cutting sawzalls, and made of soft ductile iron... yeah. Don't tempt me too much heh.
See, it should have been a bridge to nowhere. Those never seem to lose support.
Also, condolences. I'm not worried, though. You'll bounce back.
Ironically, that very bridge is next in line for the funding we just surrendered.

Seriously though, bummer dude. On to bigger and better things, methinks!
I tried, I couldn't get any of them to post in anything other than the ffxiv forum, and it's scary in there! they have spiders!

Let's go with better. Kao can't get any bigger without being required to sign an NBA contract.
I do throw a mean half court shot! (first I take the ball, then draw a really angry face on it with permanent marker...)
Look on the bright side, you still have that Zam money rolling in. I'm sure it's not much, but it's better than nothing.
Hah. Hahahaha. Bwahahahahahah! oh geez, I peed myself. Thanks, I needed a laugh there.
