Default Sorry folks - had a busy week...More WP7 news posts coming soon!

Hey all,

Apologies for the lag in WP7 news posts here. It's been a pretty chaotic week or so for me - as I finish up my day job this Friday, having been made redundant after 19 years at the same company!

So - expecting to get back on the news posts and my own site updates in the next 24 hours....

There's been a lot happening; WP7 Mango announced as being <2 weeks from official release. Some markets confirming roll-outs in this coming week, new handsets hitting, Pre-approval of Mango by most major carriers behind the scenes with MS BEFORE they hit the button and a service guarantee from AT&T to be amongst the first in the world to roll it out!

Going to be a big couple of weeks for WP7!



L8r everyone.
Sheeds.

Sorry to hear that, Strider! Hopefully everything WP7 in the next few weeks will offer a fair distraction for you. Good luck with everything!

I dont think anyone here holds it against you under these circumstances. Like, if you were dead, that would be no excuse for not posting any news! :P

Wow that's hectic man :-/
What are you looking at doing now? Are you going to focus on building up your sites following, or look for another 9-5?
Either way, good luck!!

hahaha and tnx

I have three distinct options ahead of me now. I worked all my career in the Steel industry - so maybe change to an IT field - or have a crack at a business idea I have and try working for myself if I can get it to market....

Definately want to keep my site going as well - but that has not been monetised and will not feed my wife or 3 kids (all boys at elementary school - we call it Primary school)....

Luckily the Australian awards (working conditions) mean that you get decent redundancy payouts for long-service, and I am not in any imminent strife!

I feel more for you States-side folks, with how tough conditions must be over there (double-digit unemployment, zero interest rates and recessions/no growth).

Thanks for the well wishes though It all helps as you go through that natural emotional rollercoaster ride!

l8r
