So my boss called this evening and told me that the company wasn't making as much money as he was lead to believe when he bought the company and so I'll be out of work in 4 weeks time.

If anyone knows of any companies looking for linux/unix support staff let me know.

Even better would be if I can work from home with an IP phone :)

Hell after going through 4 layoffs in one year, I had to change careers. The once mighty Telecom Engineer responsible for the design and installation of the phone systems from the Omni Hotel in San Francisco to the Golbal configuration for Sun Micro in San Jose has fallen to a saddly little OTR Truck Driver. :(

I feel your pain bro, keep your head high.

I really need to get in to rails.

I was going to be cheeky and apply to some of the UK Rails hosting providers :D

I've got my resume in at 14 different companies in the valley (Phx greater area) to get an internship. None what so ever.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
