Journal: in slashdot timeout?

Journal by Doppler00
Funny, you make one post critisizing software pirates and slashdot bans your IP from posting messages:

Starting Score: 1 point Moderation +1 50% Insightful 20% Overrated 10% Flamebait Extra 'Insightful' Modifier 0 (Edit) Total Score: 2

And this wasn't even that bad considuring it's at least 50% insightful. I mean, a warning would be nice. The funny thing is, that my "karma" is still "Excellent" and I have even been given moderator points! This "timeout" doesn't even say when it ends. Quite silly if you asked me. Too many warez fans on slashdot perhaps? It's a shame that us slashdot users who actually write software for a living (instead of just consuming it) are looked down upon :(

Journal: grad school

Journal by Doppler00

I'm attempting to apply to grad school at U.C. Davis. Not sure exactly when I will be taking classes around my work schedule. Hopefully things turn out okay.

Journal: bluetooth

Journal by Doppler00

I guess I could sort of use this slashdot thing like a blog. I should really set up my own website again.

My next exciting project will be testing out a bluetooth headset. The Plantronics M3500. My goal is to use it both as a headset on my computer for voice conferencing, and also on my new cellphone, which I have yet to purchase. Can't wait to see how people respond when I'm just talking into this thing but they don't see a cellphone.

Journal: Looking for a job

Journal by Doppler00

I'm just testing out this journal feature on slashdot. It's pretty interesting. Although, I worry about this being a "permanent record"

I'm still unemployed, but I have an interview Monday. Hopefully that will turn out okay.
