    oily substance, yuck. I know the feeling. Sorry to hear about the cheese. pasta dish sounds yummy though.

    I may not move to Wisconsin after all because I found some local jobs. These jobs pay $45,000 for entry level IT positions. Funny how some mid-level administrative / MBA related jobs pay more than $50,000. lol

    can't wait to build my own 6 core computer. The Luxrender, fancy shadows and HDRI lighting run slowly on a dual-core computer.

    ...ps1, sad to hear about the Mac. Hopefully your friend can get it working again.

    The week, age, and weariness of the last two months has caught up with me, took a nap earlier today then a short while ago again.

    Don't feel like doing much of anything tonight save go back to bed. Maybe a good night's sleep will help.

    ...maybe.

    ...have a good night all.

    yes I did feel a little lip quiver coming on :lol: I'm determined not to go to sleep until I've done some more lazing around :)

    the healing value of lazing around, physically, emotionally, highly recommended :)

    I guess the big philosophical issue is if you are asleep are you still lazing around? And how do you know you're not going to dream about work? Takes quite a few beers to work that stuff out :lol:
    ...ugh, I've had dreams (nightmares?) I was back at the old workplace. While I do need a break job wise, not about to go back to all the negative workplace politik I dealt with along with the commute from hell to get there.

    ...I'd be happy with a 25,000$a year job right now.

    Of course I have no "real" IT experience. Building one computer hardly qualifies and I had some assistance in configuring the OS.

    Out here "entry level" means a couple years of experience, firm knowledge of software/hardware and even some programming, along with several years of specialised training.

    Heck I'm seeing even basic office jobs asking for BA/BS degrees.


    The one thing Wisconsin has (especially compared to where I live) is a lower cost of living. particularly in Milwaukee. Just that for me winters would be totally brutal.

    ... question #1: yes, but independent, as am I.
    ...#2, I already do all my own houskeeping.

    Minimum here is doable, tight, but doable. Oregon's minimum wage though is higher than the national rate. 9.10$/hr. Basically, a 40 hr week on Minimum would net me 350$ more per month than I was receiving on UC.

    When I was laid off from my last job I was making only 2.40$ over the state minimum after 18 years with the company while being responsible for compiling the monthly data and statistics for the firm's most important client account. Such is the life in the service industry in a "at will" state.

    ...I know nothing about networking other than the cable that went into the back of the workstation on my desk connected through comm lines to the company's local servers and having to call the in house tech when the order printers would malfunction or the shipping system went down.

    ...well. "job searched out" for the day. Something like 120 emails this morning, many that linked to lists with the same job openings. I've tightened up my resume, reworked my profiles, and edited job search/alerts but I still keep getting notifications (sometimes duplicate ones) for positions I don't qualify for or that are out of town/state.

    One good thing though, at least I'm no longer getting referrals for truck driver openings.. Now if I could only get rid of the PCT, RN/LPN, IT Developer, Various Business Management occupations, Receptionist, and Sales Rep positions it would make wading though the inbox every morning a bit simpler.

    All I'm looking for are pretty much entry level positions like basic office clerical, warehouse inventory clerk, and/or customer service (inbound call/help centre type positions). I'm tired of being pigeonholed in admin and management. I just want something I can do everyday, do to the best of my ability, and forget about when I go home each night until I am eligible to retire with full SSI + bonuses (e.g. age 70).

    As I mentioned I really am not into "climbing the ladder" at this stage and I don't see that as a bad thing like some feel it is.

    I would think you can handle a receptionist job. Crap money but it's something

  • kyoto kidkyoto kid Posts: 30,336
    edited February 2014

    ....receptionist is what I refer to as a "pretty face" job, not suited a slightly overweight male in his 60s.

    This person is the first impression of the business people/customers will see when walking into the office. Not to be sexist however a "smart" looking and dressed woman is more preferable for this position.

    Morning. Big bright blue sky and enough of a gentle breeze to stir treetops makes for a perfect late summer Sunday so far. An all night arts festival has left mountains of rubbish up and down our streets, I guess someone will be along to clean it up sometime before it starts to smell :)

    Hey, have you seen this, A freebie with tentacles http://www.daz3d.com/new-releases/slime-beast

    As a longtime fan of HP Lovecraft I want to say THANK YOU to the creators of this product :) :)

    Finally a model that serve as a -superb- base for a *shoggoth*! There were some models from talented folks like Sixus but they just didn't seem to have the right 'blob' feeling to them. But this little guy is just perfect. Thrown in extra eyeball props and some random extra appendages, a misshapen arm here, a few gaping maws there along (not to mention the possibilities of extra deformers) and this critter would make Azathoth himself well up with a tear of pride.

    Hooray! Or should I say "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtag"!


    ...OK, lose twenty sanity points (no roll allowed) for that last expression. ;-)
    And gain ten sanity back for the Call of Cthulhu RPG reference :)

    BTW - have you seen Sandy Petersen's Cthulhu Wars boardgame? :o
