    Saw Memento, that was a blast, go see it.

    The job hunt is over, signed the offer letter from VerdiSoft, should be able to start as soon as the visa transfer stuff begins.

    I got really sick and tired of talking to companies/recruites who were all gung-ho about scheduling interviews (or even actually did the interviews), untill the came across the H1B thingy on the visa and suddenly were "oh, you might not excatly have the skill set we want" or in some cases (recruiters only) just flat out "oh, if we'd known, we wouldn't have bothered". All these companies will be screaming for more H1B's in 6 months. Wankers.

    Sunday we (mfleming, jsh) grilled in out "back yard", that was pretty neat, should do more of that while I'm still just sitting a home twiddling my thumbs.

    Other than that, most of my time is spend doing nothing, except for the daily tour down to the kilowatt for a few pints. Oh yeah, had some danes visting, they were here for Java One, so sunday night we went to (surprise) kilowatt for some (surprise again!) beer.

    Een ting der isaert var bittert var da to af de ho'der jeg bor med fik job i et firma hvor jeg interviewede (og en fra Eazel jeg arbejdede taet sammen med) hvorimod jeg fik en formumlet historie om at "uhm, du er lissom ikke helt hvad vi soegte efter til at lave embedded systemer". Jeg interviewede lissom overhovedet ikke for det job, men for server side tingene, blabla... Isaer da de ogsaa droppede min fjerde slof (som ogsaa er paa H1B og en sparke-roev programmoer) var det ligesom klart hvad der foregik.

    Men nu kan jeg da i det mindste holde op med at se paa fragtpriser. Til gengaeld kan jeg ikke rejse ud af landet indtil visum overfoerslen er overstaaet, det kan tage 2-3mnd, saa eskil skal ikke til roskilde i aar heller, waaah.

    (summary for the danish impaired : fuck off).
