Hey guys I have been offline for a while now basically because I was laid off. We have not quit prepping and actually increased for a while after the lay off.
Basically it happened in the spring half the office was walked out the door. The oil patch here in Alberta currently is a disaster for a lot of folks. The company I was with when I started (4 years ago) to today the shares have gone from 10.50 to 0.46
I will admit I was depressed for about two months and really couldn't figure out why. I have had several different jobs in my life and leaving never bothered me at all. What I finally realized was this was the first time in my life (at 54) I have ever been let go from a company.
My review the week before was outstanding. The manager had no idea what was coming down as all decisions came from head office with no local input.
Once I finally got over that I just let a few things slide and stayed off the web sites I was on.
Although I was never a big contributor I did learn a lot here and a few other sites and am grateful I did.
Anyway enough whining what got me interested today was the talk of a tablet and I have one on my list much for the same reasons stated here. A back up to my paper library. So if anyone wants to share what is REQUIRED to make an inexpensive tablet worth while I am all ears.
Feels good to be back,
