Dusted off the resume, updated, hit the bricks and submitted to three places.
Dusted off the business proposal and re-vamped, but probably going to get another set of eyes on it.
Want to check out the unemployment thing, but the language on the site reads: "Unemployment insurance benefits provide income to individuals who have lost work through no fault of their own."
After 8 1/2 years I was terminated for "underperforming" (three days after the company was acquired in a $29 billion transaction, mind you), so we'll see what the UI people have to say about that.
It's going to suck trying to find another place to work, but in a way, I always felt like I was working for people that were working towards the decline of the western civilization as we know it. So now, I'm just going to find a place with different bullshit, I guess.
Troll, you're never helpful and you don't care (but thanks for the wise words, and I intend to do exactly what you mentioned, but I'm still gonna get my resume out to somebody everyday).
Junior Council and Eric O, I am certainly looking into the coffee thing (roasted up some today, in fact).
Wire, I used to be a director of product for a very large electronic payments company. I designed, tested and "brought to market" credit card terminals for the past few years, but prior to that I was in charge of all of the systems that maintain those little electronic boxes (there were a lot of other things I did, too, but this stuff is boring enough). And thanks, man. I did do some VB6 back in the day with MSSQL and Oracle 8i, but I guess I should really brush up on it; my main expertise was Cisco design and implementation.
Anyway, thanks y'all, and if you do hear of anything opening up, send me an e-mail, please!
In the meantime, any news/periodical people need a hand? For a small fee, I'll follow around, dig up dirt and do an expose on Mike Matthews.
