I got a Green Card  
Finally my I-485 application is approved. That means that in a few days I will receive US Permanent Resident plastic card ("Green Card").
Green Card allows me to work for any employer in the US or work for nobody and still stay legally in the country.

It took a little bit over 4 years to complete Green Card process (and over 5 years since I came to the US).

Update [2008 November 10]: I received Green Card itself (pretty fast).
It came with several tips about how to settle down in the US.
Clearly the tips are for newcomers (find a place to live, find a school, find English class, find a job etc.). I went through all that settling down many years ago...

Congratulations! :)

Tree ( or more? ) childs, Green Card - what do you need more to meet a old age undisturbedly? :)

Artifical Intellegence, I think :)

I didn't really think that I'm about to be accomplished in my life.

Next goal -- to make my business PostJobFree.com profitable.

Next goal -- AI development.

So I'm not anywhere close to be at the end of my accomplishments yet.

It's funny, but nothing changed in my life yet... except that GC added some more confidence for my future.

Change of employer, may be.
Or running a full-time business.

But such changes don't happen fast ...
