I got 'downsized' just before Christmas in 1995, from a heavy-duty manufacturing (Fortune 500) firm. I had worked there 21 1/2 years. Now I'm self-employed and don't give a damn!! I'm off the Tagament and the high blood pressure medicine, I set my own hours and do what I damn well please...... P.S.: In 1996, for one year, I worked on a Y2k programming project for a major mid-west city.
