    That Mac Pro must be equivalent to at least 172 aluminium cans. Your collection is off to a good start!!

    Ya, I've been self employed for 4 years and my wife was laid off 2 years ago. She's trying to get her writing career and publishing company up and running. It's hard times right now...

    Sucks to hear that man... I was laid off about 2 weeks ago. The worst part of the whole thing is that when I looked in the classified section of the paper, the entire "jobs" listings took up less than 12" of column space.

    No one is hiring right now. It's gonna be quite a while before they are again.

    Anyway, good luck landing a new (and hopefully better) job...
