Well, this month has been hell. I'm still doing all I can to find gainful employment. I recently sent out my resume to a bunch of places and I'm once again getting the "Please send your resume in word format, so we can open it". I send out my resume in PDF, which is quite possibly one of the most Portable Document Formats.. sure its not free, but there is a viewer for every OS, so I don't know what these peoples problem is.
Haven't done much work with my distro. I have however written a small amount of perl code that controls the LED scroller at my friends apartment. I basically modified it and added in more 'meta-spys'.. The little pages where you can see what people are searching for on altavista, and metacrawler.. It now has support for 'altavista, metacrawler, kanoodle, galaxy.com, and ask jeeves'. I need to find more of these to add to it.
I've been kind of kicked out of my apartment by my GF. She thinks my motivation needs a kick in the ass and well, it does. I really wish there was another way to work things out, because this is very hard. We went out saturday and vistited some friends, drove around and talked, then went to a party. We both had a great time. The main issue is space, we have a smallish one bedroom apartment and since we've not had much cash we've been both at the apartment alot. The second issue is money, I'm still not working fulltime and I guess I haven't been looking hard enough. Finding a decent job right now is so hard.. I'm still working part-time for BWH, its fun, but I'd rather be doing something else, especially something where I get more than 10hours a week.
jfleck: You should grab either 'Ad-Aware' or 'Spybot Search and Destroy'. Both are great programs for windows that remove spyware, and the sex dialer programs. Adaware is currently undergoing a rewrite and thus hasn't been updated for a couple of months, but spybot has and its a great piece of software. It's really sad that there is a market for such programs, but atleast they're both free. I'm suprised the sex industry hasn't taken a tip from the anti-virus industry and started selling products that removed their crappy software. =)
