It's like a carnival ride

Second phone interview today, this one a technical interview. Happened
pretty fast, about a half-hour's notice, but still went well.

Technical things, talking about RTOS issues, what kind of things you
need to watch for, how to determine what you need. It actually ended up
as more of a conversation than an interview, which I think is pretty
good-- it loses that formality and gets into the kind of discussions
that designers have.
One of the funnier things: we got talking about a particular design that
I'm working on for a completely different project, and a lot of the
design decisions that I made are the exact same things that the
interviewer had to make. And I was even able to give him some advice on
one of his next decisions because it was something that I had already
researched. I think I may have even changed his mind by opening up some
possibilities he hadn't thought of yet.

He wants to do a face-to-face interview, and it will very likely be the
weekend of the 9th. Yes, an interview on the weekend, how cool is that?
It would be the first interview that I could wear jeans to.

There is the possibility that I'm actually overqualified. Which would be
ironic. So far though it sounds as if I'm on the top of the list of

It's nice to be wanted.
