Being unemployed, sucks.

Too much uncertainty, too little pattern, nothing to break up the days or even show the time of day. Whatever the previous plans, I just can't enjoy myself right now; I need to get a job, get working, know where I am.

Got another call from a recruiter. I suspect that, if all else fails, getting another STB-dev job won't be too tricky, but I really want to move on. But I'm not fully qualified for these other jobs; I'm sure I can do them, but...

Anyway... built up a new PC (Athlon 1.1GHz) from an upgrade kit and the remains of the old box; cleared out the cupboard too and I now have a *lot* of spare bits (about 3-4 each of netcards, soundcards, modems, FDDs, HDDs, Mobos, DIMMS, SIMMS). I've no idea how much of it *works* though. But, the home network runs, all the software I need's installed, and there's no more half measures... Well, the monitor on the Celeron's not great, but hell...

Yeah, once I finish sending my CV in every conceivable direction, I might get some time for my "things to do when you have time" - photography, sketching (should I admit that to you? ;), Irish...

BTW, what's Quenya?

And if you're really bored, do feel free to drop by for a coffee and an arm - and feel free to borrow some "teach yourself some random computer language" books.

It's Valinorean elvish. What did you expect? ;)
I shall indeed pop by for tea and arm, probably sometime around Friday :)
