Letters to the Power Plant #18 — Project Update at Dell

Power Plant Men

After I left the power plant and went to work for Dell on August 20, 2001, I wrote letters back to my friends at the plant letting them know how things were going.  This is the eighteenth letter I wrote.  Keep in mind that at the time when I originally penned this letter I didn’t intend on it being posted online.
