Many, Many Things

Wednesday 19 February 2003 at 11:29 pm Things that happened today. Watched 24, 8-9pm. Very good show, love that show, that show roxors. heheh, I used roxor in a sentence. Got rejected for a potential contracting job. That blows. Sold some stuff on Ebay, modified a sendmail log parser, saw the neighbors eaves troughs get destroyed by tons of melting snow sliding off their roof, realized that the snowplow folks in Virginia have no clue how to plow snow effectively given that lanes on the beltway appear and disappear with no warning even 4 days after it snowed, and some other stuff.

I'm trying to find a debt/judgment collection agency. I've got an outstanding judgment against the evil spammer PrintPal, and I'd like PrintPal and Michael Comish to pay the judgment before something more legal happens. And as a shameless plug, I'm also available to do contract work, doing network and system security and administration, system troubleshooting, spam filtering, web development, you know, stuff like that. You can see my resume if you'd like.

This guy named Seth Godin wrote a book named Purple Cow, and I'm getting a bunch of email for and about it. Seth seems like a nice guy, and he even looks like me when I shave my head. Sort of. His picture is attached. It should be pretty clear it's not me though. Anyway, I'm getting a copy of his book, which roxors. Heh, twice.

The snow is sucky, and now they are saying the 1.5' (that's 1 foot 6 inches for the decimal-system-retarded, as well as the tick-mark-means-feet-retarded) of snow that God generously sent us all in DC will now melt and cause 40 days and 40 nights of flooding. I wonder if there is a step-by-step website on how to build an ark... or maybe I could get one from Amazon with a complementary Segway scooter on board. Hey, at least it will qualify for Free Super Saver Shipping®!!! Whee.

So that is all. Roxor. Thrice.

Life, and my lack thereof

Tuesday 04 February 2003 at 01:04 am After heatedly discussing the topic of the state of MY union with my beautiful and supportive wife, I've realized that I suck. No, I don't suck; I merely have not come across something that has inspired me to action. Unfortunately, I have been waiting for something to inspire me for about 4 months now, and frankly I haven't been trying all that hard. So tomorrow I'm going to a job fair. I think I'll look for something in the realm of network and system security. Or maybe a PHP programming job. I'm not sure yet, but I need to do something, something that exercises my gray muscle.

Sure, Ebay does that to a certain point, but how many times in those fateful 7 days can you check to see how many bids you have or answer silly questions from the masses about a radar detector? And sure, you can rummage your basement for more stuff to sell, but after a while you run out of stuff. Or in my case, you don't want to sell the crap that you have because you are either sentimentally attached to it in some way, shape or form, or you have that deep inkling that if you get rid of it you'll desperately need it within 2 weeks of its departure.

So I am now setting off in my journey to find a job; maybe it's another venture, maybe it's just a mindless tech job, and maybe it's gonna rock my world. Either way, I hope it doesn't suck.

My heart goes out to NASA and the crew of the Columbia and their families. They are, have and continue to make sacrifices in their individual lives to advance our society in science and technology. I admire their willingness to risk their lives and their lifetime with their family to do what they love for the benefit of the greater good.
