    OK, it has been said more than a few times, but this place rocks! It is the people and their deeds that make this place so freakin cool.

    Dear Employer,

    Alexey was travelling on the other side of the planet, making for a very difficult commute. While here, he explained how wonderful it was to have such understanding company to work for and that you would appreciate his new experience as "personnal enrichment".
    As Alex was traveling east, he realized he was heading away from work and promptly turned around. You shoulda seen the time he made up heading west - I mean trans-continental in 2 days fast.

    Thank you for understanding, yours truly,

    The citizens of The United States of America

    Even a picture of your bike with the Hollywood sign doesn't help?

    which translates (literal) to:
    "Not
    Financial crisis, to an abuse"

    So does this mean you are having to look for work now? Was the advertising on your side cases not enough to offset being gone? I hope this works out!
    Let us know.

    Good luck man. With your story, they'd probably hire you somewhere in CA...but I imagine that would present some commuting difficulties.

    And LOL about the online translator.
