Well guys it's true, I am now a statistic. I found out last Thursday that our company is shutting down and I will be unemployed. I have until Dec 31st to find another job. If I am unable to find work then we will be forced to start cutting back on things like the second T-1 at the house. This means no more vids :sad: I am sure that I can find work somewhere we might just have to cut some corners for awhile. Anyone needing a jack of all trades master of none?

I've been

Cop
Fireman
EMT
Computer Tech
Director Customer Support for 11 telcos nationwide
Manager of Tech Support for the largest ISP in the world
geek, no wait that one doesn't count.

Good luck, Cap. Although I blame you for my addiction, I hope everything turns out all right for you.
 
sad to know that... but hey, i'm working on an American Multinational and i can feel the rope in my neck every #$!%& day...
Hope you get back to business quickly than you got out of it.
 
If things get tight, lets do some math...1,000 (active members) @ $5 a month = $5,000 a month. Not a bad second job or supplemental income. Just keep it in the back of your mind just in case.:)
 
This is terrible news captain...I hate to hear it...best of luck finding something between now and the end of the year. Chin up, there are jobs out there...

Let's see...I can "get rid" of my boss and you can be director of IT... :super:
 
Sorry to hear it captain, hope you can find something before then. The IT industry does seem to be picking up a little bit though, so you should be able to find something. Good luck out there.
 
Captain I'm sorry to hear about this and hope you find something really fast. Like Thinker said IF YOU NEED ANYTHING LET US KNOW.
Good luck

I'll second or third that Cap'n. Sounds like a fine idea, whatever it takes to cover you for as long as you need it. If we can actually get this together shouldn't be too hard.

Besides this isn't a really selfless act or anything, I love the board and I do not want to see it go away. So whatever we can do just shout...
 
Good idea guys...I can't lose my new found hobby either!  Anything to help out and keep the masses happy and help out!  :D
 
Sorry to hear that Captain, hopefully with the rebounding economy, something will surface for you shortly.

Ride Safe! :super:

:argue:

I'm a lifer now...I'm down with doing the kick in and help a brother out thing...Shat I was kicking on Beale Street in Memphis, Saturday nite and had a bar tab of $112...Shat the amount you guys are suggesting aint shat...I'm spend more on motel rooms in a month than most of your guys bike notes...
 
Now maybe I am a bit slow but why not set up a paypall acct....I know there is a type that is cheap to set up and keep going . Then people can contribute as they may....I know I'm always low on fundage but would contribute what I can to the best Busa site around....

P.S....you'll find a job...as all the rest have said keep your chin up....:)
 
Guys I have some time, keep your money in your pockets and I'll let you know when I need help (vids go away, board only accessible between 8am - 8pm ) I am pretty fortunate to have been blessed and have a wife that stashes like a pack rat. This too I will endure. If you feel compelled to help then just buy a shirt, its a win win situation, I get a little profit to pay for the servers and such and you get to roam the town at mach 3 with a shirt in style :bounce:


Thanks for the offers but lets wait awhile whaddya say?
