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...
