You're welcome. The money is well spent.

BTW -- I'm currently in the process of accepting the job offer here at FIS. I've informed them that I'm a founding member (I hope I am) of OVC and I hope that their non-disclosure agreement doesn't apply to outside activities that are non-work-related. The agreement says all inventions, discoveries, and works of authorship during the period of employment belong to Fidelity Information Services.

To accurate, honest, and verifiable elections!
