No need - I could/would jump ship if I didn't enjoy coding, especially with the small gestalt formed. As I noted in an earlier post, I could fart in their general direction*, and walk away.

It may comfort you to know that I knew this was an American Indian quote. Attributions vary.

Hope for the best; expect the worst; and you'll never be disappointed. My thought have turned to what actions (bureaucratic) I should take to optimize my situation should the End of Days arrive. (E.g., a visit to SSA site as I need to know my substantial income years count; how much I'd get from unemployment insurance; which investments to liquidate first, and when, based upon income, should I need to dip in vs. IRA required withdrawal, and when, Etc).

And - as a grandfather, more time to remake the grand-kids in my image (snicker).
