This move to the new department is putting a serious crimp in my ability to surf the Net...Geez I'm even working at home in evening, WTH...

Somebody's gotta check out the smack you throw down around here. It's not personal, junior.
Well, we had a RIF last week and it detonated my project, along with a couple of my direct reports. Then, the next day, the new org chart was released. My manager and skip-level manager are no longer with the company, so I have a new director and a new VP. Then, they pulled all of my direct reports onto other teams. Lastly, they moved one of my peers back to an individual contributor, and put him and his team under me. Now I'm on loan to my old director, and a new director, but reporting to a different director.
I'm confused, but I'm actually in a pretty good position, from the 30K-foot view. Sheesh.
I hate reorgs.
Witty response requested.
I'm selling a bunch of stuff on craigslist. I do this 4x a year or so. I've got some RAM for sale for $10, and I get this response:
ill take the ram can you bring it to <town about 25 miles away>
Just want to keep you aware that’s all…

Keep 'em coming, folks. I'm thinking of batching them all up and sending it off as one response.
Last summer, I posted a story about a gun being pulled on my while riding. The next night, a guy I race against asked me about it. I asked him how he knew, and he told me he read it on here - he doesn't post much but he does read the site - and based on a few of my posts, he was able to figure out who I am. (The race report thread makes this quite easy.)
Since then, I've been a lot more thoughtful about the things I post on here.
I've had good luck selling big stuff on CL. My 09 Buell was sold in two days with no hassle. Same thing for a bunch of diesel truck parts I had from the Duramax I got rid of. Met the people at a Wal Mart parking lot, and changed cash for goods no questions asked.
Tried to sell my old (2008) road bike cheap and it was the biggest pain in the ass. Specifically said in the ad that it was a good bike for someone looking to upgrade without spending a lot of dough. Mentioned that I had raced it for four seasons, not crashed it and had taken good care of it. Was asking $1000 for a Carerra with chorus, eurus wheels & good tires, new chorus chain, new saddle, 11-23 and 12-25 cassettes, and new bar tape. Everything was good to ride the way it was. "will you trade for my......?" "man that's a lot of miles on the bike, can you guarantee that it will last?" "can I pay you half now and half in another month?"
Finally said screw it and it's still sitting in my garage.
