These were the people who wanted someone to develop software to assist people who are trying to catalog, count, identify, etc. the fish and wildlife along the coast. Excellent friendly people, the job would not have sucked.
Except that someone else got it.
Mind, I'm not too disappointed about the job itself, because it would have meant an expensive move, and lots o hassle. But I do regret the fact of another job going poop.
They did encourage me to apply for anything else that comes up. I am told that they don't say that unless they mean it. So, that's encouraging.
