Certainly a potential for data mining here — but keep an eye on that next elf you meet... it could really be a spook."

I'm an Australian Citizen and work as a Senior Systems Admin at a telecommunications company. I'm looking for a job in the US on a visa (E-3 which is easier to get than H1B for Australians).
What do you think would be my chances? I guess you'd need a copy of my CV, but just wondering if real employers who are struggling to find the right candidate would bother with the trouble of getting an E-3 visa for an Aussie? (FYI the E-3 is a lot less work than getting a H1B but because its not well known known nobody seems to really want to bother with it).
I also visit the US yearly and could interview in person and have a US ph number (voip) employers can call me on too.
I can't work out if you're serious... but I'm in NZ, and have applied for a couple of US positions from here. I'm in a specialized area (Unisys & ALGOL, if you must know) so there's not many of us about. Got as far as people in the US emailing back, but as soon as they found out I didn't have right of abode, I got dropped.
Fine, no problems, I reply. Good luck with the search.
Never heard of Read-Only-Memory, have you?
Yoda, is that you?
Anything labeled "Audiophile" or geared toward audiophiles.
Damn you. I have about 100 old vinyl records I'm trying to sell. Of course only a true audiophile would see me in these clothes... I'm sorry, would realize that the sound quality from these scratchy old pieces of vinyl are far superior to modern digital recording techniques...
Contact me for a deal, readers!
Really? I can still clearly recall a sermon

That would be the coolest wallet ever!
Especially if they were being held (somehow) by sharks.
OK, I invoked meme #4859...
Solid state is all right in certain circumstances, but I always treat it as a suspect drive about to fail.
Me, I treat all media as about to fail. Professionally, I've spent many a happy year backing up from one media type to another just in case I was right. Once or twice I have been.
Well, this is, what, the 3rd time it's been 'official'?
I think I'll wait a few months before I believe it's officially official.
That's not to say this isn't highly cool -- I just am quite certain I've seen several variations on this over the last few years.
In a few months, we'll have another 'leaving'.
Rinse and repeat.
I'm guessing the premise of the TV show is: 1. Power goes out 2. People light candles 3. Civilization burns down?
The problem I have, is that this is happening 5000 miles away. Not my problem, let their neighbours deal with it.
Well said - and the Arab League (basically 'the neighbours') have condemned Assad for the action, which they think he did. That's as far as they went though...
I believe the application fee was $35, so they have already raised a whopping $7 million that I assume will be leveraged for more publicity stunts in raising further money for the mission. The main speciality of the Mars One project is fundraising and public relations, not space travel.
Agreed. It struck me as a reality show, rather than as a serious space mission (that's a mission into serious space).
Quark! Quark! Beware the quantum duck!
