After an amazing first 6 months at Area Orion, I just had my first review. Mostly all good remarks with a couple areas of an improvement and a side note of the "Mile Below" incident. It was worth it! I got promoted to Tech 2 status and a slight pay bump. Anything helps in this economy.
Meg and I have been working on our software side-project and its coming along with pretty interesting results. With our work schedules, we've only get limited time, but she already has the basic engine in place and rudimentary visuals. Looks like an old version of "Poser" at this point.
