    I’m so freakin’ glad to have the help….

    I said it Monday, and I’ll say it again – Welcome to the party, Joshua.

    (for any outsiders – it really is a party. We work hard, but all love what we do….)

  2. Thanks for the congrats guys. I am really excited and feel privileged(dang it – get the spell check out) to be a part of the EE Team.

    What is more exciting is what is coming from the EE team in terms of software development.

    Let the party begin!! (Jason, you are bringing the beer right?)

  3. Cool.
    I have always found that reading his stuff left me smarter than when I started.
    Another good addition.

    It will be good to be able to read Joshua’s posts on here.
    If EE keeps up the current pace of absorbing all my favorite bloggers, I’ll soon be able to simply go to one site to get all my info. Keep up the good work Joshua and company!

    Having recently worked with Josh, I know what a tremendous opportunity this is for EE. I recently asked Josh if it was possible to determine the elevation of a LDD point while working in map. Within minutes he sent me a lisp routine to handle the task. This is one very simple example of Josh’s abilities. I don’t think I’ve managed to stump him with a question yet.

    Enough with the “brain drain” already… leave some for Autodesk, okay? Way to go Joshua! Don’t let Hickey get away with buying the cheap beer, store brand is NOT the cure for what “ales” ya’!

  7. James Murphy says:

    I have never know Jason to buy the cheap beer, in fact when I asked for good old PBR in the old days he would go out of his way trying to find it for me. : )

  8. Jason Hickey says:

    A) As Murph says, I never drink the cheap beer…

    but more importantly,

    b) it’s the duty of the new guy to buy the beer 😉
