Comment: I'm all for this (Score -1, Troll) 397

Frankly the "cult of free" generation is coming to an end. We've had it easy for quite a while - free software(free like mp3's and Public radio - not like free beer) free movies - free everything. It's can't last forever, at some point in a capitalist society people need to make a profit.

In fact I've ditched the free paradigm and started buying stocks in the companies who actually charge for stuff - when the gravy train leaves the station I don't plan on being left behind.

Journal: Farewell Slashdot!! 2

Journal by Jack Wagner

Yes, Hello.

It would seem after many years of posting to slahsdot I've been struck with a "bitchslap" and have thusly decided to retire, rather than fight against the humourless cretins who wielded their heavy handed justice on my account.

Journal: I'm putting the band back together!!!

Journal by Bob Abooey
Good news gentle readers,

After a long breather I've decided to get serious and put the band back together!! Once again, Bob Abooey and the Atomic Overdrive Blues Corp. will be hitting the road and takin it to the streets. We'll be playing small clubs for a while until we get our chops back then we'll do a stadium tour next summer.

Of course this means I will no longer be working as a FreeBSD developer.. which... truth be told... I'm pretty sick of doing anyways.

Journal: Summer vacation!! 2

Journal by Jack Wagner
Hello gentle friends,

I've just returned yesterday after spending a month lounging in the South of France, sallying from one nude beach to the next whilst partaking in only the best French wines known to mankind. First, I want to say that the French women are Ohhhh Lala!! And secondly I want to say that the french food is Ohhh lala!! Sadly I've burned through my Q1 profits and need to get back to work, however I should have some time for slashdot until the next contract gets ironed out.

Journal: Back to Apple???? 1

Journal by Bob Abooey
Yes, Hello!

It's been quite a long time so I thought I would write up a quick update for everyone out there to get caught up.

As many of you know I used to work at Apple back in the early 90's in their mouse division and worked there until the late 90's when I left due to a difference of opinion with Steve Jobs. Well, as fate would have it I've been having some secret discussions with Steve again lately and I might be going back to Apple!!

Journal: Sorry 1

Journal by Jack Wagner
I've been getting numerous requests from people to come and speak at their organization or school. I'm very sorry but at this time my schedule does not allow me to partake in any public speaking so please do not email with any more requests. Money is not the issue here so offering me more money will not be a consideration.

If this should change I will post a note here or on my website.

Warmest regards,
--Jack Wagner

Journal: Just got back!!!

Journal by Jack Wagner

Hello Friends!!

I've just gotten back from an undisclosed location overseas helping a very high-profile client with some cutting edge data mining techniques.

All I can say is: Wow. This was without a doubt the best gig in the history of Wagner Consulting LLC and it all started from my client contacting me based upon an insightful post I made on Slashdot.
