My Skype interview is set up for Tuesday at 12:00h their time, which is FIVE IN THE MORNING^#@! my time. This really sucks, but I'll do anything I have to. I really really hope they just extend an offer at that point so I don't have to go through the hassle of flying back over to help out with a 1 or 2 day project. It sounds like they need me to start asap, so perhaps we can skip the formalities and just get me over there.
