Vicci Martinez featuring CeeLo Green — Come Along.
What’s on your mind?
I nailed the second phone screen. On site next week.
hey wmd — how’s the mt tonight?
WOOHOO!!! out-fucking-standing dood!!!
I”m really psyched. I was asked about something I’ve not done a lot of hands on work, I immediately responded with a good performance hack… then responded correctly on what the possible downsides were and how to mitigate them. particularly exciting for me was that they liked me saying get data and construct a stochastic model so parameter changes could be simulated before doing extensive work on a testbed system. I may finally be using mathematics in my daily work.
I mentioned that Sandia National Lab had done some studies on using this methodology and internally published some good results from it.
Going back to the initial call from the recruiter – he told me to check glassdoor to check them out – salary for a senior software person would get me close to back on track for inflation adjusted salary from what I made my last year at Sun. My most recent salary was the same as my last year of at Sun – and there has been 16% inflation in the intervening 8 years.
I think both my prospective employer and I are both excited about this.
ohmystars wmd — that’s great news!!!
And now for something completely different.
here ya go
I watch that movie every Easter. One of my favorites.
i’m not at all surprised :) life of brian at easter is like alice’s restaurant at thanksgiving to a lotta folks.
This movie has been on my mind lately: The Shakespeare song, and this one too.
And Congrats, wmd. Go get ‘em!
i’ve always been partial to this one
hey dearie — how was your day?
Good times on my coast….. hot inland, but we have a nice fog layer. Got no complaints!
marine influence is just now coming up the columbia and across the coast range… finally starting to cool off up here — tomorrow may be in the 80′s :) best news is the night is starting to cool off. we’ve had record high low tempss for the last 3 nights in a row.
I liked that one a lot when I was younger, it still is fun. I’ll change it up with this one.
Thanks Dearie. This is feeling really good for me.
I’ve also been coaching a facebook friend for a job at Kahn Academy. Kind of odd, because I’d be a great fit for that job too, but she’s in contention and can use some help.
this one has been earworming me all day
Try this to displace it.
scots! love them — this is another great one
I need to put some clothes in the washer and go to bed soon. Glad I could share some (good) job search news.
so happy for ya dood — happy laundry and happy dreams wmd

Good evening, Suz and lln pups..! so it’s gonna cool off a little for you Suz? That’s good. Been in the triple digits here since Friday.

Holy sh*t, the Bolivian Prez was on that flight…? Hubris much…? 8-(
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
Holy sh*t..!! Any more details about this, mzchief?

• Foreign minister: France, Italy Spain and Portugal denied airspace permits
Wtf…? The EU conspired as well…? This does not bode well, peeps, dangerous precedents are being set…! *gah*
He folks. SOO excited to read about wmd1961!
Heard a great interview on the Sam Seder show today.
The author Barbara Garson, has a book out on how the 99 percent live in this recession.
She was really great, saying a lot of things I’ve been saying about how you feel it is your own fault.
It helped me a bit.
comin‘ at ya, my friend.!
Aloha, spocko…! Ask Bev if the Book Salon can host her book…? ;-)
Also if you want to hear ol’ Spocko on the radio here is me talking about what we can do to protect our food and environment by busting the secrecy and horrible reality of the Trans Pacific Partner ship. It’s like NAFTA for Billionaires. It will use this deal with pacific rim countries to gut our food safety and environmental laws.
Here is the link. I chose a clip from Network to start the show.
thanks much, mzchief. This is craziness on the part of Obama..! some of those EU lapdogs are showing their true colors.!
I think I might. It’s funny, I heard a couple of really interesting radio shows this week. Three of them were on Angie Corio’s In Deep. And I’m not just saying that because I was a guest.
This one on the Brain and Money was fascinating. Really interesting.
And this one on “Everyday Sexism” was marvelous because the guest was very articulate and because she used a lot of the techniques I pioneered.
(I was actually scheduled to be on the show but went on the TPP show instead.)
I really liked it because they had an impact on FB using an advertiser alert program. Money is the leverage that got them to notice, and change.
