Remote question

Hey guys,

I've got some news.  I've just been offered a job in DC.  50/50 chance I'll accept it... we are still in the negotiation phase.

I've got a question though.  I really don't want to leave the gaming group.  You guys are fun as hell and the stories are great and even though I game with other groups of people that I like - you guys are the highlight of my gaming month!  I really love the sense of humor and the laid back let's have fun attitude that you guys have to gaming.

If I did accept the job... would you guys be open to me remote gaming with you?  I was thinking that I could get a laptop and just leave it with you guys... put a good HD webcam on it with pan/tilt/zoom... and an awesome table mike and keep right on gaming.

The job is with a division of the federal government so I'm anticipating a bunch of off time as well so I would make the occassional trip down to NC for some gaming fun as well.

I was also thinking that I could tape a laser pointer to the webcam so that I can point to the board to indicate mini positions and stuff like that.

I'm trying to figure out if I can get some remote headsets for you guys which might actually help cut down on the store noise.

Anyway... like I said... it's 50/50 that I will take the job in DC.  I'm not really a DC kinda chik so to say that I am "scared to death" thinking about moving there - it is an understatement.  I just wanted to check in and see if you guys were open to the suggestion should this happen.

And also... if I do end up moving to DC... you ALL have a place to crash should you sojourn up into the area.

Congratulations on the job offer, Jessi. Hopefully it's a good move for you, although it will be horrible to lose you from the group. The remote gaming's a good solution, I'm just not sure how it work in practice. But them I'm a dumb old luddite, so what do I know? wink

Seriously though, I understand the fear but if the job fits you, then go for it.

It's 50/50 that I will take it.  Still a bit more to go before it's a done deal.  And then there is the background check...  wacko
They are going to love doing the background check on me smile

I've been talking to people who are part of a group that has members who do remote gaming.  They say it works really well if you have 1 person doing it... get's harder if you have 2... and is really hard with 3.

If you guys are open to it I would like to try.  I would take care of getting the system together and getting it all tested well prior to any kind of move.

Grats, Jess!  What was it you said you did again?  Programming?

Yeah for you Jess!  It certainly sounds like an interesting opportunity.  I'd be open to trying the remote gaming and we can see how it goes.  I hope it's everything you need it to be, though it will be sad if you're not around.

@Russ - yeah.. I'm a programmer.  I'm not excited about DC but it definitely sounds like a better fit than my current team's operational style.

@Michelle - The thing in DC sounds like a better fit for me given the recent diagnosis... but seriously... if the remote gaming doesn't work then I would consider driving down every other Saturday... 

That may sound a bit crazy... but one of the guys that would be on my team in DC has a house in Southern Pines and he and his wife drive down to the house every weekend.  Evidently crazy is pretty common in DC smile

I may end up doing the same thing... buy a house here in NC and then drive down on the weekends.  I really do like NC.  It's home.  I don't know that DC could ever feel like home to me.
