I have found a couple of RL friends…

…if you have been wondering why I haven’t blogged anything at all recently. That is the primary reason. Another is getting a new job very shortly.

I am not abandoning blogging, but do have to slow down for now.

Your continued interest is appreciated.

Have you tried restarting the network, sir?

For most people who have fast (broadband) connexions to the Internet, and have called their ISP’s tech support, that line is quite ubiquitous. However, I have to report that doing it actually solved something for me!

Maybe, just maybe…

…I’ll get a job this time.

I received notice this week (while on vacation, hence the lack of blog posts here) that I was the recommended candidate for a certain position in the state service. Now I have to get fingerprinted [!] because of the kind of work that is involved. Not wanting to waste time, as soon as I discovered the Email from the state’s HR office I set up an appointment to get ‘printed tomorrow, which I will attend to in the after noon.

This is actually the second time I’ve done this. The first time was in the conference room to a notorious “state hospital” (that is, psychiatric hospital) that had hideous 1930s/1940s interior design. If nothing else I got to say I had been inside of one.

The downside is that, if I get the position, it will be far away and I’ll have to move. Pout. Frown. I’ll still take it and be happy. I’ve never gotten this far post-interview with any CS positions.

Interviewing for the CS

I suppose I should tell everyone who reads me here, that I will be a-going on a two day trip for interviews at the end of this week (June 9th and 10th) I’m getting everything prepared for then, particularly the car (has a dash light on) and my suit.

I may or may not blog about the results (depends on how tired I am during/after and if anyone asks me to), but I will be trying to enjoy the process and possibility of getting a position. Unfortunately if I do, I will have to move away.
