As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The bright side is I get $11K severence pay and I've been looking to transition out of this place for a while. The way I see it I can have a good holiday and start to concentrate on either finding a new job or going back to school to get my education degree in the new year. This is where I'm a bit torn.
I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember but the prospect of going back to school is terrifying to me. I'm already in a good bit of debt and I'm not thrilled at the idea of going further into it. My other option is to take my skills and try to apply them to a job that is more secure (ie: the government). My girlfriend and I live in an apartment that isn't cheap ($1200/m) so if I was to go back to school we'd have to move out of there I think - I think this would disappoint her quite a bit as we worked hard to be able to afford a place like this.
So I turn to you great Help/Advice forum. What should I do?
