    Thanks All! I do appreciate it. What will be coming next I can't be sure,
    basically, I am a science slut, I will gladly geek for any of the sciences.

    I have some pretty big roots in this swampy third tier college town so getting me to move would take a bit of doing, SWMBO has agreed that if it means I get to work for NASA we would pack up and go. But in the meanwhile I'm looking for telecommuting or getting lucky with something local where I could
    "not be part of the problem".

    main()
    {

    printf("Congrats!!!\r\n");

    }

    If you can't guess I am a C guy from before C++, welcome to the field.

    Congrats, and especially at your age.

    Some of the best years of my life I spent with my nose deep in books on algorithms, particularly those by Knuth.

    Doesn't matter if you ever use it. It's the pleasure of having done it. The success is nice too, of course !

    What do you plan to do now that you have the degree? Do you have a new or better job lined up? I hope you'll find something that puts your new skills to good use and makes all the work pay off.

    Congrats also from Van. Isle!! I got my Masters of Ed. at 42. It "proved to me" I still "had it". This fact alone that I was about the same as others out there made me capable of working until I was 66 and still felt good about teaching. YOU have proved to yourself that YOU can do it!! Wayne.

    Congrats! That is quite an accomplishment.

    Ironically, I'm just now retiring from IT at 57, and thinking that tinkering in the shop is what I need to do to decompress.

    Way to go Tom

    Congratulations!! Are you planning on changing careers or was this a personal satisfaction thing? Either way, I am inspired by your journey.
