Currently, there are seven interviews online:

Dude, where's my job?


I found out recently that I will be available for exciting, new job opportunities at the start of next month. It's not my fault, honestly. These things happen. In this case, things happen to me and 22 of my co-workers.

Company President and CEO Brian Jones said Wednesday that the layoffs would be necessary if the Defense Information Systems Agency follows through with a plan to reduce the amount of a software development contract with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.


ORNL spokesman Billy Stair said the contract's annual appropriation has varied. The agency is considering reducing the amount from about $12 million to about $7 million, he said.

There you have it kids.  That's seven meeellion dollars that used to pay my bills, and it's going bye bye.  Such is life.

I've had a good run with DPRA.  If you recall, I was very happy to come on board, and I have no regrets. I am, however, ready to start my next geeky adventure.

If you, or someone you know, is looking for a first class geek for hire, I may be your man.  Have a look at my resume. Download copies and share them with friends. :-)

Bringing Cheer to West Nokomis Circle


I stood on a ladder and cursed for a couple of hours yesterday.   Oh, and some lights got hung somewhere between the expletives. :-)

Feliz Navidad,
