Yep, that's right. I'm going to be unemployed for a while (found out this morning...pack and be gone by noon). So I figure I'll try and make the most of it by posting more sh!t that Eric the Hun or Troy! Whooooohoooooo!!!! My wife and I were semi-planning on this occurence, so we're ok for a while. Got piddly severance (one week), but had 6wks vacation. Anyway, you can read all about my former employer here: http://messages.yahoo.com/?action=q&board=PRGN oh, and after the 28th I'll be posting all the goods I can on them there, too!

Sorry to hear it. I guess the peregrine flew into a high power line, huh? Welcome to the club. I was laid off last November, and just got my last unemployment check. I'm thinking of becoming a CEO. They seem to make good money and appear not to require any skills beyond the ability to say "duh." Check it out.

"Woot" ? Sounds like someone is a "DoD-whore" as well! [;D]

I love DOD!! Sorry about your forced time off. [flag] Bill3508

Yeah I spend far too much time playing DoD, but what a great subject! Fairly realistic first-person shooter set in WWII. For the uninitiated: [url]www.dayofdefeatmod.com[/url]

Thanks for the replies. I'll have to get DoD, don't have that one yet. I'm busy playing Soldier of Fortune 2 right now. Just finished the first mission. Of to get hugs from the fly honeys at my going away drinking party!

Hey sfoo, if you ever want to work with speds, I'm your man. Sure you get hit and spit on a lot, and have to change diapers on people your own size, but you get 8 weeks of paid vacation each year. Lemme know. [:P] Hey, I'm actually on vacation for two weeks starting Monday, so if you want to do a mid week shoot, I'm down. Good luck with the job hunt. And if you need a spare cup of kibble for the kids, let me know. [:)]

Sweet, DVD, Ratters, and Me off playing fun gun boys. I like it. Next week will be fine! How about tuesday, since Monday USI is closed?

Hey, don't feel bad. There are a few of these with your name on it: [img]pweb.netcom.com/~mattja/pics/Happy_50.jpg[/img] In fact, I think it's $330 a week now. What did you do for those guys?

Let's say you were unemployed and wanted to get a crew together of other unemployed people. Would you join?
Link Posted: 6/18/2002 10:33:00 PM EST
Imby, Sure. Depends how little I have to do, though. [:)] Mattja, darn right I'm getting the checks! Why not...they are paying for it, so I'll go along for a while. I was a Unix Admin, btw. And hey, sgtar....what are you doing tuesday next week?

Hey! I'm an unemployed resident of the Bay Area too! Although, I wasn't laid off....I haven't yet obtained one of these "jawbs" I keep hearing about since finishing college. I'd be interested in joining fellow regional AR15'ers for some shooting...I get to pick up my AWESOME Fab10 on friday, so I'll... ....later... anyhow, I had to go buy a new keyboard after smashing that one to bits while thinking about what I'm reduced to owning in this state. But seriously, I'm picking up my fab10 this week, I'm relatively new to the bay area and haven't the slightest idea where to go shoot a rifle. I just got my first 1000 rounds of Q3131 from ammoman... Oh, I could probably be recruited into an unemployed crew without too much persuasion. I'd want to have a really cool title though. Something like Chief Pimpomatic Enforcer, of Love.

Darn, going to Great America next Tuesday. I am TOTALLY free the next week though. I'm planning on taking a trip to SF to see star wars in digital that week as well. Let's at least try to meet up at the dog park.

Hi Chief Pim...., er, Capn'. How's it hanging...hopefully down to the knee right? Anyways..... Yeah a nice Post-Partum Paper Punching session would be fun. Guess we'll have to work on the timing though. Yep, I'll be seeing star wars, Sum of all fears, maybe one other tomorrow. But I'll have the boys out at the park quite a bit while I'm affored the time to be lazy! got new pics once I sort out the mess of photos uploaded in a hurry today (from work, of course, before promptly deleting everything).

OK sfoo, wife has to work Tue. so can go now if something is still happening. Let me know.
Link Posted: 6/19/2002 9:47:58 PM EST
Hmm...if sgtar's up to it, maybe we can jump in DVD's truck and journey to Sac for some fun?
