It keeps seeming like I have one or more good chances for a couple weeks, then my hopes get dashed again for a couple weeks... rinse and repeat.

Still no job for me.

Surprise! I'm still unemployed.

I wonder if maybe I might spontaneously combust.

I wouldn't have to keep looking for a job.

If I got hit by a car and lived, I'd still have to look for a job to pay for my medical bills.

I wonder what it would have been like if Thomas Bernhard, the Austrian writer (Heldenplatz), had joined Monty Python back in 1969... What would the Python programming language have been like?

Well, Miguel de Icaza post a refutation of the scandalous interview. Well, not exactly... Nevermind.

chalst : I don't think DV wants any criticism of miguel from anyone with less years of experience in open/free software than him and Miggy, nor from doctrinaires like Richard M. Stallman. Nor from anyone with more years or cred, either. Simply put, Miggy owns GNOME and everyone else can get stuffed. If you are on the GNOME project(s) and aren't an employee of Ximian, act like one. If you are an employee of Ximian, you have to do what Miggy says to do or quit. I'm sure they have a non-disclosure/non-compete clause in their contracts. Standard procedure in the software business.

Only people who code and don't complain or criticize, are allowed to criticize. But if they say anything, they have disqualified themselves....

Now I can get flamed by bigwigs like DV, too!!

I like to think I am a literate induhvidual, which is why I read things like Gitta Honegger's book, Thomas Bernhard: The Making of an Austrian, which I got in today's postal delivery. [ISBN 0-300-08999-6 EAN 978-0-300-08999-8]

Yet another Cleveland, Ohio, job in the works.

Ich bin von Kaffeehausaufsuchkrankheit befallen. Noch einmal. Einfach kompliziert.

I hate being unemployed. It hasn't helped me do any programming at all. I keep wondering how long my savings will last. I have been out of work since June.

On the plus side, I have found MP3 files of the Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard reading his work.

After several weeks of frenzied calls, emails, and one interview, all bets are off. My pending interview was cancelled. No job for me. Maybe another frenzy will start next week.
