As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Wednesday I replied to a Craigslist ad for an IT support tech. Friday I got an email from HR to schedule a 10-15 min phone conversation. Since my previous phone interviews with HR people have been about 2 minutes Im assuming they're going to ask me some technical questions, which I am confident I should have no trouble with. What I am slightly cautious about is I don't have any professional experience, but through friends of friends and family help people with their PCs, like Im sure many people on this board may do. I know I can do all of the things they want in the job description, but how can I set myself apart from other people they may be interviewing who may have professional experience? Could the fact they asked for either 3 years work experience OR a 4 year technical degree + 1 year experience mean they are looking for someone relatively new to the field?
