Hey, yeah, it's been a while. Since my last post, my family has moved into a new house, the company I worked for filed for bankruptcy, I briefly went to work at The Blencowe Group, and then I "returned" to Hahl, Inc.
To make a long story short, Lenzing, an Austrian multinational company, purchased the Glassmaster Monofilament Division in May of 2007 and renamed it Hahl, Inc. After much prayer and consideration, I took the offer to return to my old job, albeit with a company under new ownership. This was one of the most difficult decisions of my life. My brief time working at Blencowe was awesome. A big part of what I've done over the last 15 years has been software development, and Blencowe was a venue where I could explore that passion to its fullest. In the end, I did what I thought was best for me and my family. So, I'm deep in the corporate world, learning new lessons and adapting as well as I can. Recently, I was given a new responsibility of Production Planning. Predictably, I've sought out a way to develop something to automate this function, integrating this into the custom application that I've developed over the years.
