Thanks a lot for the comments, guys. I appreciate it.
AiResearch, as far as the hypothetical McQuay air-run goes, I will leave that one alone for now lol
Socotech, I do occasionally teach some classes for work now, although I would not call myself a seasoned instructor. I have a great deal of social anxiety and it's difficult for me to get up in front of people and be the center of attention and be the answer man. It never gets any easier for me, either... I guess I keep volunteering for it because I am a nerd and I do love to talk shop and share experiences with people who do the same stuff
The key to happiness is lower expectations.
