I am starting Monday with Ericsson Research & Development in Richardson,
Texas because:

1. I have some Erlang Experience, including a Masters thesis that concerns
Erlang and

2. the job market really sucks for employers, and I am marginally
competent.

P.S. I am changing my eMail in 2 weeks, and need to unsubscribe my old
eMail and subscribe a new eMail. Does anyone know how to help me with
this?
