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!

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

    It has been said that you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have

    So, no pants right?

    I've been reading too many period books lately I guess but when I see VC I think Viet Cong and that coupled with Stale's eye patch is giving the whole thing a sinister air that's making me really enjoy imagining what his job is.

    Oh for the love of...
    I am so sorry for the delay in payment. Funds are a little tight right now. We are processing employee payroll on March 1st. We will send you a check the next check run after that.

    Only this payment and one more until I am done with these people.

    That is some colossal bullshit right there Zip

    If it makes you feel any better, today I'm being serenaded by saws and hammers and drills as the facilities crew builds a conference room right next to our office.

    Mine is a rotary kiln the size of $Texas used to make lime. Well at least for the last few days anyway.

    Phone interview went pretty well I think. They had some laughs, the questions were fairly standard I felt. The one that threw me for a loop was, 'you notice a bad fish while feeding pelicans, what do you do?!!' Now I just have to wait 1-2 weeks to see if I get a call back.

    I wore pants.

    The answer was to eat it yourself, saving the pelicans!
