Peggy Lee with the Dave Barbour Quartet — Why Don’t You Do Right.
What’s on your mind?
happy almost day before friday! how’s everyone doing tonight?
Suz got the Zed!
Just a quick visit, I’m headed for bed soon.
I got a contract gig. Likely about $20K through start of summer, and excellent exposure for finding permanent work.
I will be doing analysis and write for insideHPC and insideBigData (headshot and bio will go up on the masthead).. There’s a very good chance that my work will lead to permanent employment with one of the companies I’m covering as an analyst. My work will be seen by the people that I want to work for; and I’ll have an excuse to go do some performance work in their labs as part of my job… again giving me excellent exposure.
I’m slowly getting the word out on this. By the weekend I expect I’ll have informed everyone that should care about it.
woohoo wmd! most excellent news dood!!!
Quick quarter for jukebox, then to bed.
hey dearie — how was your day?
g’nite wmd — happy dreams (nice quarter dood)
Busy, busy. Work is good. Downtime is better!
truth :) you getting any of the rain that the bay area is getting?
Woo-hoo…! Helco is now holding off to Apr. 7th…! ;-)
Oh yeah on the rain. Rain in Santa Maria and all the way south…. except I don’t detect any rain in the ‘nard. We could use some!
*exhaling* oh tut that’s such good news! i’ve been worrying about you all day
Oops… Aloha, Suz, Dearie, wmd and lln pups…! ;-)
i hope ya get some. a friend in marin county said that her forecast had rain in all 7 days…. she was very very happy about that
aloha tut — you gotta be breathing easier …. and have a wee bit more time to figure out what your options are
Are all systems working in your condo while you await the outcome??
I’ve been busy prepping ice in my freezer(2 lt. bottles of water and baggies of ice cubes), charging my rechargable batteries and devices all day etc…!
Anybody need some ice now…? ;-)
do ya have a solar charger for any of your devices?
edit: also do you have a car charger for any of them?
I’ve been asking my many off-grid friends if they had any spare panels I could borrow…! A bunch of us disgruntled owners are planning to buy/lease generators and I’ve got most of the fixings to make a UPS to charge laptops and other sensitive electronics…! ;-)
check with your neighbors (who are in the same boat) and ask if any of them have usb plugs in their cars — they are pretty common in newer cars. my 2011 ford has one and i’ve used it to charge both my laptop and my cellphone (just not at the same time)
Uncle Sam trained me well, Suz…! ;-)
uncle’s training aint gonna stop me from worrying about you and yours
My Son flies out on the 8th, so it’ll be one less to worry about here…!
Mahalo for y’alls concern, I will do my best to host the lln’s and keep y’all abreast of my ohana and foreign affairs…! *g*
I’m wiped out from the stress today, Sweet Dreams, Suz and pups…!
ya gotta buncha folks hoping that this gets resolved without ya getting cut off
g’nite tut — happy dreams
i guess everyone has nodded off for the nite or gone elsewhere.
g’nite all — happy dreams
