    Congratulations Brian! All of the hard work does pay off.

    Gotta be proud of yourself for completing that while maintaining your cottage industry. I remember yet, that feeling of completion when I finished my undergraduate, as though it were yesterday. That was 36 years ago. Relish the feeling, it will be with you a long time.

    I'll bet that's a load off your mind. I know a few engineers and all of them (electrical, chemical and mechanical) seem to have made a career out of their hobbies and enjoy life quite a bit. I think users of tarps will benefit from having an engineer working on the problem.

    I resemble that!

    I've been self employed so long, I am unemployable!

    And more good news, I've got a signed lease on my own 2 bedroom house here in Rochester, complete with workshop (i.e. 2nd bedroom) that I can work out of full time while I'm in Rochester. I'll finally be able to expand to how I've wanted to for so long now, finally being able to offer the service I've dreamed of offering!
    That's awesome, man - congrats! I have lots of friends who are Engineers, and watching what they went through makes me so glad I never chose that path...

    So re: my tarp... can you make it before you move? I want to be able to tell people that it was hand-made by this crazy Engineering student working out of his dorm room!

    (I'm sort of kidding - make it whenever you make it, but it is an awesome story)
