Umm.. let me guess.. Boeing? ;)
Probably one of the biggest Government contractors for airplanes, etc. They always have jobs in Denver too... I once almost applied but the position was filled a long time ago.

congrats

Way to go! Good thing it isn't me... I would probably severly mess up everything, haha.

But wait... in another sense it makes me sad... Think of the system administrator of the windows computers they have right now... (s)he is going to be jobless... poor person... ;-(
