This one's so much better. I know you said this in jest, but want to remind Zero that $$$ isn't everything.


My previous position paid very well and I was ready to accept $10k less per year to be full time programmer. I'm glad to have received an offer that pays more, plus some perks I was willing to let 'slide' and earn them later in my tenure. They made a really good offer. So, its best of both worlds. And yes, money isn't everything, I found that out directly the last 10 months. Never had I been paid more, but never was I more miserable.

I was just kidding. Of course if he gets paid an extra $100 it would help.

The original offer needed some tweaks to make me sign and yesterday that accommodated them in writing. I didn't think I was going to get my 'requests', but relatively speaking they were within reason. I start this Monday.


Thanks everyone.
