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!

Another Job Thread? I could do that at home with MS Word!

    I currently work two jobs. It's going fairly well so far. I'm tired in the mornings but since my first job has me moving around a lot I wake up fairly quickly.

    Also, coffee helps. I know it's not supposed to really wake me but hell I'll take a placebo effect.

    We have customer contact info from an initiative to go paperless for our billing, so we sent out letters for several months informing our customers of the change, and collecting, updating, and inputting their email addresses into our ERP system. Now we want to branch into email marketing. Several people feel we can just use the contact information we've already gathered to start sending them advertising because 'they're our customers.' I've tried explaining the difference between transaction email and commercial email, the double opt-in best practice, and the diminished goodwill with customers who gave us their contact info to receive business docs suddenly, and without their consent, receiving advertising. So now instead of agreeing, we're using some internet lawyer site to see 'how bad it could be' if we just go ahead and start sending stuff anyway. All of this is clearly defined on the FTC's website, but noooo we have to use some internet lawyer website (which I've checked into and they can't actually give legal advice and have been sued for false advertising) 'to make sure.' And honestly, I'm not even that concerned about the penalties, I think we'd probably fly under the radar in that respect. It's the total lack of respect for our customers, and the wasted time attempting to advertise to someone who never asked for it that makes me want to put my foot down about it.
    I'm confused. Tell it to me in Star Wars

    I think I need a new job.

    Gonna wait for January, then it's time to update the portfolio and get out of this place.

    Losing ~3 hours a day in commute is just too damn much.

    I drive a forklift! It's fun, actually.

    Main thing to remember is just how much the tighter the turn is on a forklift versus a car. Shit's ridiculous.

    I've been told I was being made permanent over a month ago, and they've been dangling this mythical recquisition and official offer in front of me since. I know a lot of folks have been out for the holidays and we've had some leadership changes (new guy has signed my rec, apparently) but my contract only goes through the end of the year, dudes!

    Maybe I will get a week off until they get me the paperwork? Or maybe they'll pull the rug out from under me, because I don't trust corporate suits/employers/white people.

    Probably the rug. You don't avoid telling someone good news for that long. I may have colored expectations since I went to the hospital last month at the impetus of my employer and was told I would have a job to come back to.

    I had a dream that I got employed by a corporation to sort through some junk in an abandoned office complex, with the additional proviso that they had to take blood samples from me at the close of every working day to ensure that I was still alive

    I remember thinking that it was a pretty good deal, all things considered

    It had a flexi-time plan and everything

    Cocktail

    I am the last barman poet.
    I see America drinking the fabulous cocktails I make.
    Americans getting stinky on something I stir or shake.
    The sex on the beach, the schnapps made from peach,
    The Velvet Hammer,
    the Al-La-Bam-A Slam-a!


    I make things with juice and froth: the Pink Squirrel, the 3-Toed Sloth. I make drinks so sweet and snazzy:
    The Iced Tea, The Kamikaze, The Orgasm, The Death Spasm,
    The Singapore Sling, The Dingaling.

    America you've just been devoted to every flavor I got.
    But if you want to got loaded,
    why don't you just order a shot?
    Bar is open.

    I had a dream that there was a large metal scorpion in the shop trying to get at me, it nearly stung me but I trapped it under the mop bucket.


    Today the information for Valentine's Day came via UPS. Oh god. My hands are going to die and I am going to lose my temper.

    Also my boss still is being useless, hoopla!

    Pretty much, yea.

    I did a bit of light flair from time to time behind the bar, but some of that is just because it can often be more efficient in terms of speed and delivery.
