    People either complain because they think it's free homes for the "lazy" or because they're not free homes & you have to prove you can afford the home to get one.

    Well there is a minimum and maximum limit. For instance, a family making more than $60,000 probably wouldn't qualify, and neither will someone on disability ( I don't think ). You also have to be willing to volunteer your time to help build your house and other people's houses in the future.

    People on welfare get section 8 housing, which is pretty fucking destitute, let me tell you. Having witnessed it first hand.

    How would you rate it on a scale of 1 to 100% white?

    Like % of non-white people living there? My area is predominantly white to begin with so I'm not sure how much that would help you?

    In Boston we had really bad section 8 and really nice section 8. I lived a block away from one of the nice ones for 2 years without realizing it wasn't just a regular complex. I imagine the families there were very relieved to be there and not in one of the ones in Dorchester or Mattapan.

    It's pretty terrible how people on disability and welfare live. Then they try and take away their welfare if someone from the family gives them a ride to a doctor's office, or gives them money to buy some milk and fucking cereal.

    When the housing market here in town died they opened up a number of complexes/housing communities to Section 8. So many of them were so poorly maintained :(


    edit: I did! I took a look at that add-on, and if/when I can ever dedicate the time to it, the Pro version sounds perfect since Dynamics GP runs on a SQL database anyway so I could plug it directly in to pull out pricing and part names.

    It would, however, require I work with our 'art department' (the CEO's daughter who 'does the photoshop good' but has absolutely no goddamn ability to organize any of the stuff she edits/creates. Basically she just cleans up the images and we've been sending our stuff to an outside design shop who does all the layout and formatting. I would have love to have seen their faces the first time someone here emailed them our excel file catalog and said 'print this')

    You mean in the UK? Because we are used to people sneaking in here, especially in London, and trying to get a secret job without having the correct visa. It is why we have checks. And your lack of European accent would have been a warning light. In fact, if you were Polish you might have got away with it easier because of members of the EU jumping about all over the place to work is pretty normal. But you are not European.

    It's really great because it saves a ton on toilet paper. Toilet paper expense was my nondisclosed compensation during my interview. And if I can deal with the pain of holding it all weekend, as a guy, I can drop my toilet paper usage down to near 0.

    So I got a job interview later today at this neat little upscale kitchen restaurant/wine cellar place. It's not exactly what I wanted, but I won't have to do server duty and at least i'll get paid a steady hour rate. If I can get at least $9/hr out of it i'll take it for now. As long as I have something to help pay the bills, I can be a little patient while I look for something else.

    I met with Cogliostro and he gave me a really good lead on what I should be looking for. He works at a hospital around the area and told me about the Dispatch Center work. All you do is take emergency phone calls and read from a computer monitor on what to do depending on the call nature.

    The hours can be long (6 AM to 6 PM, or if you're unlucky, 6 PM to 6 AM), but the pay is around $14-$15/hr, and there's a fair amount of overtime rates so i'd be more than willing to do that. This is the kind of thing i'd need in order to save enough cash for school this January, so this is something i'd see more as a long-term prospect to shoot for.

    I also applied to a few hospitals for their more general work jobs offered.

    Grats on HfH, VoC!! :D

    At work we're trying to get people to use our new ticketing system. (previously it was just a google form, before that.. nothing).
    It's proving to be a little tricky, which was expected.

    I got called rude!
    Rejected a ticket cause the subject was just one word. Told him as much in the response and over IM (he was wondering why it was rejected). He made a new ticket and cc'ed my boss and his boss on it.
    I responded by merging the new ticket with the old one. 8-)

    Ugh I hate people that are not willing to learn a new system. Even when that new system is to their benefit.

    Like we have lab people here complaining about having to double check information, so they wanted a way to give them a reminder that something special needed to be done for certain lab/insurance combinations. The catch? They had to go in and set it up the first time through for each lab/insurance combination.

    They'd rather get fined and chewed out than take 40 minutes out of their day (PAID) to do this.

    Ya, we're hoping that people get used to seeing it.

    Our boss already warned everyone to be prepared to hear 'Have you made a ticket yet?'
    Not sure if everyone took him seriously though. They'll learn eventually though!

    working in software dev has trained me that if it's not in QC/JIRA/Rally/SF/TTP it does not exist and I am not accountable for it.


    The downside is that works both ways.

    Going to board my flight back to NY shortly. My UK trip was awesome and completely exhausting. Doing NY-London then London-Edinburgh then a day of meetings in Edinburgh before flying back to London before a huge meeting the next day right before flying back to NY is really tiring. Who knew?

    On the plus side, work-wise it was amazing, and my suitcase is filled to the brim with Scotch and cashmere.

    We're going to be looking for a Junior Graphic Designer for our Atlanta office pretty soon. The job isn't posted yet, but I can send along any portfolios or resumes if anyone is interested. I can't pull any strings though, so you're all at the mercy of my boss, and better have some skill.

    One day I'll be a manager of software devs and no longer have to program. That'll be a good day.

    Plus I like designing software way more than coding it.

    Kind of a long shot, but does anyone know of any part-time computering (repair, tech support, administration) jobs in the Hampton Roads, VA area? I'm looking for supplemental income, and something that won't conflict with my full-time job. I would also be open to barista-ing, bartending, or possibly donating plasma.

    He has not yet. I sent him a message to send those along on Facebook but haven't heard back. I figured he was busy at the time, or getting his portfolio/resume updated or something.
