And, no I'm not that excited, they just have an exclamation point in their name.

Anyway, for those of you that didn't know. The BREW Ninja lost his job in April after the company downsized 80% of the total workforce, which included all of my friends and my roommate.

I then went onto working for a company I hate, and that has a really bad rap in the industry. So bad that my recruiters suggested that I not put it on my resume, and that I take it off my LinkedIn profile. That bad. My mistake, someone should have told me before I agreed to take on the position. That aside, I was successfully hired to start working at Yahoo! on July 1st.

So, as I often tell people, don't let anyone tell you that you can't make money playing video games all day.

I'm starting a Mobile QA Engineer for their server-side based mobile applications on both iPhone and mainstream handsets, and earning about $42,000 a year for this position. It's not a lot, but it far exceeds the median for similar positions in my field. And, all I really needed was a knowledge of the mobile industry (3.5 years), Perl, PHP, SQL and UNIX.

Which means, I know a lot of you kids out there that are trying to do the gaming industry that far exceed my skills in the above listed areas. But, you kind of have to live in California or Washington or somewhere where all the gaming companies happen.

Anyway, thought I'd share since I haven't visited the board in a long time.
