LAN Party at my place Aug 13th 14th. Email me or MSN me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for directions.
Not that anyone other than myself reads this stuff, so I guess this is sort of self-therapy:
My employment here at Calpine ends on Friday. It's sad, this was a job that I think I could have kept for a few years (finally). 90% of the workforce is getting laid off at the end of August, and since I am a contractor there is no severance in store for me, so I thought I'd start looking early. Oddly enough the two interviews I had were not for jobs that I was looking for, these were people who found me. I was offered both jobs, but ended up accepting the job at the larger, more stable company. I am going to miss all the people I met here at Calpine, I am not sure if I will really do much to keep track of anyone other that Julio, but I certainly do appreciate all that I learned here, it was a great time (even if the pay wasn't all it should have been). It's been hard to work today, I was sick yesterday so this is my first day of the last week of my experience at Calpine. I hope the next job makes me as happy as this job does...
Well, thanks to those who showed up for the LAN party. We had a blast playing BF:Vietnam and NFS:Underground as well as Dungeon Siege:LoA.
To those of you who didn't show - It really peeves people off when you are asked weeks in advance, reminded three days in advance then tell me us that "you forgot" or "I had plans". You aren't 12 years old, can you not plan that far ahead in life? Dolts...
When: May 19th-22nd
Where: My House
What: games will include anything enough people can agree on to play, could be anything from Duke Nukem to Dungeon Siege:LoA to BFLVietnam. Bring your own booze unless you drink Scotch.
The LAN party was a big success, thanks to everyone who showed up!
When: Feb 27th, 28th, 29th
Where: My House
What: games will include anything enough people can agree on to play, could be anything from Duke Nukem to Dungeon Siege to Desert Combat. Bring your own booze, drink more than an ounce of booze then drive home, and you are banned from my house forever. It's about playing games and cursing the guy who sites beside you, *not* about dying...
LAN Party at John's in Edmonton January 23rd-25th. Anyone interested in attending should email me at email@example.com.
I bought an XBOX around Christmas time, along with 8 games, spare controllers, HDTV adapter, DVD,memory cards, etc. What a nice total package. Good work, Microsoft!
Ooh, try it out. (google for it). Much less memory taken up than the standard client. Handy when you try and download 8 or 9 ISOs of your favorite linux distros at a time...
I have a new job (finally). I am working at a power company now as a Senior Network Analyst. Sounds like a nice title doesnt it
