Regular lurker here! Count me in for some fantasy football! Are you set on nfl.com for the league? If it matters at all, I'd like to cast my vote for the yahoo league. I'm in 2 other leagues there (commish for one of them) and it'd be easier for me to manage. If not, it doesn't matter which league since you're the commish.

Lurkers welcome. Added.

And, I might stick with the NFL site unless many others pull for Yahoo or something else. I'll admit I'm biased towards them though because they've got a mobile app for updating your roster that I dig.

That's cool. We all have our biases! Haha.

I'm in Gallagher!

Nice! Added.

We're getting a good mix of senior members, newer members and long time lurkers. I like the diversity.

Are you going to send out PMs with the link to the league when you get it created? Can't promise I'll be able to remember to check this thread every day looking for a link..

Absolutely. Just made the league so I'll send out the PMs once we get the last member locked in.

We should have our team names be our forum names... just easier to know who is who.

That's my only suggestion, promise :)

You've got the last spot, Argus. Added.

Sweet. That went better than I expected. I'll send out PMs to everyone shortly with the league url and password.

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
