Thanks @grassy and @audiofan1. I'm being treated well on the way out and there are lots of jobs in my field, so I'm not really concerned about finding employment and therefore not too worried about finances (though it will be nice to wrap things up so that the uncertainty of not knowing is gone). The trick is going to be finding another job that I really enjoy as the one I had is going to be tough to live up to (which is why I stayed there so long). I had built up to tons of vacation time, worked from home 4 days a week, had interesting work, worked with good people overall, and so on.Hope all goes well for you mate.Our jobs are the backbone of our lives so i hope it gets sorted for you mate.Things have been a little slow for me as far as work goes but starting to pick up a little and has come at the right time.Good luck with everything mate.
The good thing in all of this is that I've imposed a freeze on buying anything "expensive" until I know where I'm going to end up. What's the good part about that? It's forcing me to wait and see what Marantz does with the 8804 and what options there are from the competition (at various price points). Same thing with the upgrade to a 4K display as I'm now forcing myself to hold off a bit longer which likely means some combination of improved technology and a lower cost on the 75+ inch display I'll want to go with. The resale value on my Denon AVP may be close to zero by the time I upgrade, but that's fine as I got a great deal on it and don't feel it owes me anything at this point; it's one of the best A/V purchases I've ever made.
