Well done Doc!!

By 1 no less. Nice control

You deserve the spot more than anyone my friend... Enjoy

Just don't get too comfy, I might get bored running 50 DC projects and be a one trick pony again

Cool WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT...?

...that a year after joining the Team... I'd make such good progress...?

I'd gladly settle "just to be in the Continuum," if the big crunchers would come Home....

...and once again help the Team... and "be" the Team

Thank you ...I am humbled

Moving

Hey Doc.

Probably could help you move and stuff. Just let me know when and where. Give me a call soon.

Got some DHC stuff to talk about.

Hopefully you can stay in the lead during the move.

I guess we will have to get you some SUPER batteries to power those PII-400's man!!! lol

Doc, you live too far away for me to help with moving, unless you are moving to Texas. Regardless, my best wishes are with you for a safe and easy move.

BTW, I have a dual PII-400 box still running SETI under Win NT4. Two instances are running, and average time is 12h56m for each, so it cranks out 3.71 woots daily by itself. It's a keeper

Dam Doc... and I thought all your heart aches were done with the divorce. I'm afraid I can't help you move either, but I can offer you a place for your Big Gun and the twins... Ok thats didn't sound good

I'm in your neighboring state and if you find you can't take your crunchers with ya I can offer a home and keep em crunching for ya untill either you can take or they meltdown

I'm not exactly across a street from ya, but if you find its on the way....

At any rate, good luck at what ever may happens Doc.

Maybe Try these for your ummm... Needs.

Doc, since you haven't been through anything like this, let me shed a little light (and hope) on your case.

First, your attorneys are not "pro bono", since they will be getting paid by SS when you win. Pro bono is done without fees regardless of outcome. Therefore, since they have the big chance for money, they will work extra hard to get it.

Second, you will not appear in a regular court, but in the presence of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). (S)He will have one social security doctor present as an advisor to review any medical testimony/data that is presented, and there will be a court reporter to take notes. You will be represented by your attorneys and by any of your doctors who are willing to go to bat for you.

Third, since you are not a malingerer, you should not have a lot of trouble proving to the ALJ that your disability is valid, permanent, and that it will prevent you from ever having gainful employment again. Your attorneys will very likely prevail (and 94% of the cases that go to an ALJ are ruled in favor of the disabled person).

Fourth, when you are granted total disability, you will also be granted a lump sum for all the payments that have been made to you by your insurance carrier (Aetna or whoever), BUT you will have to pay the insurance carrier back for all those checks you have received from them. This payment will be a net "wash" for you, and you will likely just break even on it. From that point forward, you will receive checks from Social Security as the disability insurer.

Fifth, after two years of disability (date of commencement as determined by the ALJ) you will qualify for Medicare even though you are not 65. This will dramatically reduce the amount you have to pay for your personal medical insurance, which will become secondary to Medicare.

So, bottom line is: you are on track to receive your 60% pension, a supplemental disability check which will bring you up to 100% of your former salary, and (in two years) coverage from Medicare at a nominal $55/month. (This $55. monthly payment may also be reimbursed by your retirement plan from which you currently receive 60%... check with them when you start getting Medicare).

The future is not bleak!!!!!! You are starting a new page in a new book of your life. I'm certain you will succeed and thrive in this new era!!!

Best regards,

-- Hog

Doc, you can count on it that I'm right. I've already been through that entire process with my disabled wife, who was ruled totally disabled by an ALJ after SS refused to acknowledge her condition. It took us a number of years to fight through the BS, but it can be done, and I am very hopeful you will do it without problems.

Best of luck, or God Bless, or whatever makes you happiest!

Just remember that if you want to ask anything about the procedure, give me a PM and I will send you my email address for correspondence. I have a telephone, too, if you feel like talking.
