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!

    Rent a tuxedo!

    Honestly, what you can do is talk to someone on the phone before the interview to get comfortable on the phone.

    Today at work one camper went all Red Dragon on a girl. Without provocation he went up to her and immediately bit her face. His teeth were latched onto her.

    And it was fucking horrifying.

    Zonugal, what is your job again? I need to know so I can never ever be associated with it.

    I'm a case aid for children with behavior issues/disorders.

    This week is our camp as the local school districts are out for mid-winter break. Typically my job is pretty simple but this week is handling severely autistic children for 8 or so hours.

    Shit goes down.

    I started my current job a year ago. I came in and spent the first 5 months improving, architecting, and designing better systems and better products. Over the past 6 or so, I've watched the company go out of it's way to hobble, cripple, and generally shoot itself in the foot at every chance.

    And yet, the VC keeps pouring money in. I would love to know what they are telling the board and the VC in particular. Because I can't see it.

    Anyone else have to use Oracle enterprise software? (Like iProcurement, e-business suite, etc.)

    I wish all this stuff would just die in a fire.

    Of course, the fact that my org's finance manager won't approve this $65 req I put in last week probably doesn't really have to do with the software.

    Its her money!

    This is what I have to tell myself 5 times a day

    I do this a lot too. It's kind of sad because I like my place of work and I genuinely want it to do well because it's a lovely pub, and I used to get really stressed when things went wrong which made the place look bad. Stupid stuff like not having enough food on a Saturday night or running out of beer, for no reason other than the landlord fucked up and forgot/didn't bother to put an order in. And now our head chef has finally gotten sick of it and quit, and we just know the place is going to suffer, and it's annoying because if it was any random employee messing things up we could shout at them but when it's the boss you just have to deal with it. So we tell ourselves it's their money and try not to give too much of a damn. Not exactly great for morale.

    phone interview tomorrow afternoon. should I wear pants or no pants? I need to sound awesome.

    I took a phone interview for a consultant gig back in the day while taking a dump, had to keep strategically putting myself on mute. Wasn't deliberate, I had a stomach flu and the guy was 15 minutes late calling so I finally said fuck it and went into the bathroom and of course as soon as my ass touches the seat the damn phone rings.

    Got the job though.

    1st interview done. I think I talked too much, but we'll see. If it's good, march 19th I start a 9 week training course. Problem is, wife is due in what would be week 7, and I'm not sure how they would handle that.

    I think I got it though. we'll see.
