    Just received my copy of Let the Right One In. Gotta say that Suntup has knocked it out of the park again. This book looks amazing. Love the artwork, and the production values of the book itself are spectacular. The continued excellence of these Suntup AGE's makes me doubt that I'll be hopping off the Suntup AGE train anytime soon. I have also always wanted to read Let the Right One In but previously held back as I was waiting until I could find a good harcover copy (which I was never able to do prior to this Suntup edition). Am very happy that I finally have a copy and can't wait to dig-in.
    Thanks for getting this thread back on track . For a minute there I thought I was logged into the Edward Jones forum

    Congratulations. Mine is not scheduled for delivery until Friday. It left Seattle this morning so there is a chance I will have it tomorrow.

    Washington allows Oregon residents to not pay our sales tax by showing Id but Oregon does not reciprocate. I am working on a legacy system that the company is trying to replace. The current estimate is about three years. As long as the stock market does not tank I will be in a position to retire in three years. If the company does not outsource my job to our India partner I should be able to make it to my retirement target. That and the fact that when they dump me I will get a package that includes 1.5 years pay and a year of medical insurance. My goal is to have the house nearly paid off in the three year time frame. Should be able to get pretty close.
    Sounds good. They started trying to offshore my department to India back in 2011, and pretty much gave up on that a couple of years ago. Things finally came to a head when the accountants figured out that having our code done in India and then fixed by us was costing them more than when we just did it in the first place. We still have a small team there, but they are only allowed do the most harmless updates, and I have very little interaction with them these days.

    As far as rewriting, we converted from VMS to Linux over the past ten years, and we're converting DCL to Python before DCL support dies off. Every new VP thinks we should rewrite the entire application, and then looks at the estimate to rewrite a 35-year-old Fortran system with 18MM+ lines of code and says "Forget it, carry on..."

    All the programmers in my department are in the 51-72 age range, and I think only three of us are under 60. There soon won't be anyone left to offshore

    That's great! PA and NJ have a reciprocal tax agreement, so the fact that my office was in PA and I was working from home in NJ has no effect on taxes. They just announced that our building is being sold, and teams are being relocated to Wilmington, DE, downtown Philadelphia, and Pennington, NJ. Most of my team lives close to the old PA office, and the commute to DE is at least 90 mins each way from there, so our manager is pushing to have us classified as full-time remote employees. That would suit me just fine. If I can make it another 10-12 years without getting laid off again, I'll be ready to retire.
