We were visiting with my dad the other dad, and he says to Jim, "I saw your name in the paper today!" Jim, looking confused, said, "What for?"
Apparently one of his patents went through. When he worked at Autoliv, he applied for quite a few patents. Because he quit the company, he never heard whether or not most of them went through. Apparently, one recently did. The bad news is that he probably won't get the fabulous payout that he would if he were still working there.
He still is absolutely thrilled with his new job, so I think he's fine with that.
