I'll keep this short Macrumor Forums.... May 24th, my Wife and I had our first child, a healthy beautiful baby girl. All was amazing. Skip to May 28th (mere days later...), I was laid off. I was a (Windows/VMware) System Administrator for IBM for about 4 years. Right smack dab in my paternity leave, myself and many others are given lay-off notices. Aside from also going the usual job hunting routes, I decided to come here as well, to the Macrumor community. A giant community full of lurking insiders and hidden opportunities. P.S. The legality of laying off a person on paternity leave has already been investigated. No dice!
