You're going to be a MoJo!

You'll soon know every WiFi spot in town.

Better, make sure they give you an air card and a decent camera.

Good luck!

Apparently, the job provides $1,000 a year tech allowance.

I hope it works out for you and I look forward to reading stories written from the toilet of your favorite bar. Please come up with a secret code for indicating the where the story was written.

I also look forward to bar-related news stories, or stories written in or around bars.

As for my random love: been drinking at my desk for 3 hours! WOOHOO!

I'M FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! FREEDOOOOOOMMM!!!!!! Today was my last day at the office, and we don't open up shop again til Jan. 4th. I'm completely free!!!! YEAH SON!!!!

Boss just stopped by and asked "why the heck are you still here?"

"I've still got beer to drink, and the internet is faster than at home."

Got a nice chuckle and a GTFO look

All right, all right. Remember that job offer I might have mentioned for Lloydminster, AB? No? Yes? I don't care either way. I didn't take it due to low money and high rent and living costs. This is all old news.

I am now in the lead for a job in Penticton, BC. Oh yeah. More money, cheaper rent and a gorgeous mountain view. Gonna be a sole reporter, a one-man news gathering machine for a strictly online news site. I would get to write stories in my car, a coffee shop, a bar, my car, a bar, my bathroom or a bar.

Here's hoping, here's my fingers crossed, here's my enthusiasm:

Hopefully soon to be congrats! Pentiction is a very nice city and you have access to some other great spots as well.

My boss left for the day and for the first time in years did not let us leave as well. The only reason this is in the love thread is becuase we are all hanging around chating.

After today I have until January 7th off work.

Sounds like a cool boss.

There will be relocation reimbursement. There will be prostitutes, male and female. There will be blow. There will be a free weed dispensary machine in the lobby.

High fives! My company is also done until the 2nd. This merger has turned my brain and my boss' to mush and we're desperate for the time off as January will be even crazier. Other than Christmas Eve at my Mom's and Christmas Day at my girlfriend's parent's, I plan to do nothing except hang out with her, the puppy and play a f*ckton of video games.

Also today, we got well over 30cm of heavy, wet, "heart attack" snow in Ottawa. My girlfriend and I were dreading having to shovel the driveway after work but when she got home, we discovered that one of our neighbours (not sure which) came over completely unprompted at some point during the day and snowblowed the entire driveway. We still were shoveling for about an hour but this random act of kindness saved us about 2/3 of the work. That neighbour is a big damn hero. I've got to find out who it was so I can tell him all his computer service for the next year is on me.

There will be Frarkin Frogohs for everybody. I plan to partake of some of that... stuff right now.

Congrats! Based on your new location, you are now contractually required to attend PAX-weekend parties now. Further details will arrive via black squirrel courier.

My wife is very happy to hear that. Thanks for the congrats! I cannot wait. New job, new skills to be learned, mountains to gawk at, roads to be afraid of, squirrels taking all of our jobs.

Good for you, SB =)

Thanks dude. It's gonna be great. More money, more tech toys, writing in coffee shops, huge trees and mountains. I'm gonna grow a full beard and fulfill my destiny as the Crazy Mountain Guy. I'll be flinging news stories from the top of a cliff as well as my poop.

Call me when birds start nesting in your beard. I've got a cream for that...

My brother lives in Whistler with his wife. I have poked him to see if he knows of any 1 Bedroom apartments for rent in/around Penticton.

My dad rents out his apartments in Kelowna, and he uses Kijiji which I think is the preferred listing in the area over craigslist.

Thanks for the congrats peoples. If anyone wants to PM me some apartment info that'd be great!

W00t w00t same here. Free until the 2rd. I have plenty of modern games to play but I'm really thinking about breaking out some old school stuff. Been wanting to play A Link to the Past and Super Metroid specifically.

Congratulations SB. I'm looking forward to your impending articles.

Congrats Strangeblades!

I used to live in Kelowna, so I can say for a fact that the Okanagan Valley is absolutely gorgeous! Well done strange.

Congrats SB! That's awesome!

My love for today is that about half of the house is now fully packed and cleaned. Sure, there's the loathe that there's still the other half to do, but it's the smaller rooms.
Also, received a box today from my aunt. She sent me two absolutely awesome shirts that make me feel pretty. Also, a few gifts for under the tree, even though I told her to not worry about it. I usually feel really homesick around the holidays, so this definitely cheered me up.

Off work until the 7th, Christmas shopping is done and dusted, winter Steam sale in progress AND (bonus!) the world wasn't swallowed by Quetzalcoatl overnight.

Huzzah!

It's been almost a full month since I've had any issues with sound on my PC.

The culprit?

McAfee.

Been using MSE for the past month, and everything sounds great.
