Having a preliminary phone interview with a company I would really enjoy working at and, feeling like I'm actually qualified for the job.

Knocking on wood!

I think he's probably qualified to do more than that. ;)


Squueee! Just got the call for the in person interview on Monday. :)

Do you have a block of wood you can practice with this weekend?

Spoiler:
Congrats and good luck!

That's awesome news!!! Break a leg, we're rooting for ya!

Best of luck TigerBill.

I've been stuck in the airport the last few hours. Why post in the love thread? One of my fellow stranded passengers has a small golden puppy. Watching the faces of the hundreds of people who pass us by light up when they see the dog is almost making the time pass quickly.

I watch this movie every couple of years, and it makes me grin with delight every time. I know it my heart or hearts it's no The Thing, or Alien, but I do have a soft spot for it. Plus, it's obvious that the Dead Space team watched this movie and took some inspiration from it, so that makes me extra pleased.

I love when someone I don't really want using my computer anyway sits down and then is completely mystified by the keyboard being completely blank. Like to the point of just giving up and not using the computer. It's just the best thing.

I feel a teensy bit bad when they look up and they have that look on their face that's like "oh no, I don't know what to do now" and I have to say "What?" and try and look innocent, like there aren't four other fully labeled keyboards in this very room.

Of course.. there are four or so fully labeled keyboards in this very room.

But they don't know that.

I sort of do the same thing to people by turning my laptop display's brightness all the way down when I am not using it.

I've discovered that shutting down my iMac when I don't want someone messing with it works surprisingly well. They see the monitor and keyboard, but no way to turn it on.
It seems to never occur to them to look for the power button on the back of the machine.

Three years ago today, I married this guy I met on some video game website.

It sounds like an awful idea when you write it down like that, doesn't it?

And then we sawed a dead animal into pieces with some other people we met there. It's kind of a weird place.

This isn't the loathe thread.

...and it's set to Dvorak.

I don't have a problem with people using my computer.

Q.E.D. on that, dear.

Congratulations, you two. May you live as long as you love, and love as long as you live!

I never thought I'd say this, but Comcast.

Excuse me a moment. I just died a little inside.

But no, the support tech came out when he was expected, called ahead of time, very profession, fixed the problem quickly, and gave me a contact number to bypass the horror of the phone tree. It was a very easy experience, and the problems seem to go away.

Edit: And everything's back to normal! Amazon thinks I'm offline, and speedtest.net and speedtest.comcast.net are differing in their opinions of my connection by a factor of 2, both <1/4 the connection speed I was promised. Ah, good times.

But regarding happy things, congrats you crazy kids. Marrying people you meet on the interwebs. I'd appreciate it if you stay off my lawn.

Awww!

I was having a really rough night until I came in here and saw this stuff, cheered me right up. Congratulations you two =)

Happy anniversary, Edwin and Clover! Almost missed it

Happy anniversary, Edwin and Clover!! Really glad I came by here and read up, you guys put a much needed smile on my face this morning!!

I love how this year is turning out in terms of things to do. Not only are my wife and I celebrating our 15th Anniversary in Croatia this summer, but the following concerts are rolling through town literally blocks from my home.

- Fun.
- Bloc Party
- MGMT
- Prince (rumored)

If I did all of that this year on top of getting back into cycling and finally getting to PAX again too see other GWJers, this would be an amazing year.

Incredible. Life is so random. I always tell my single friends to stop trying so hard. Stop worrying. Love will happen to you in the most crazy, random way you can't even imagine.

Hulu is touting every single Star Trek episode for every Star Trek series available. But only until March 31. Are there even enough hours to watch it all? Probably deserves to go in non-sequiter, but I was already the last poster there and it feels weird.

Between now and March 31? Well according to Wiki; Voyager is 172 episodes, DS9 was 176, TNG was 178, Enterprise was 98, the original was 79, and the animated was 22. Assuming 42 minutes of content per episode that gives 725 episodes*42 minutes=30450 minutes=507.5 hours=just over 21 days, so no :E Unless you're able to watch and listen to multiple streams simultaneously that is.

Spoiler:
I have too much free time at work this morning.

That's not a mutant... that's just an aussie.

He does have problems typing on a Dvorak keyboard, though.

[size=6]Also on qwerty keyboards...[/size]

I saw that and hoped that it was a remake of the A Quest for Gold.
