Update for the work situation
As I mentioned previously, KLA-Tencor just put a number of their e-beam products into sustaining mode. Thankfully, I've been spared the recent set of cutbacks and I'm now being moved over to one of the last remaining e-beam systems, a review product that's still in development. The company feels that this product is the future for them and they're pulling in key Engineers from all the discontinued e-beam systems.
My hard work over the last two years has paid off, the company sees value in the software I have created which is good. However, I would really much rather work hard creating software that I can own and market myself. A one guy coding type of company is my dream. This way, I would directly benefit from the quality of my work, which I feel is the best (of course).
