Calibrating the Matrix...

And went to work as a dev at Harper-Collins' christian division, Olive Tree...

I found a place nearby (Spokane, WA) that was hiring a PHP Lead Web Engineer. After sitting through multiple interviews, the first of which I dressed nice and they had shorts and t-shirts. Then the second of which I wore shorts and t-shirt and they were all dressed nice :-(.  I finally got the job.  Doing dev work for a "real" company was rewarding but also nerve racking. Especially when they ask me to build a brand new payment gateway for a small time credit card processor next door.  There were issues to say the least. Thankfully not with any of my code. The small time processor had some massive flaws in their code that the implementation I wrote had flushed out. In the end, it didn't even matter since we ended up going elsehwere.
