  2. Post your face!

    Mine is still as bushy as ever (although not in that pic), however, I have started to go grey at the temples. Time.
  3. Post your face!

    Sigh. When this thread started I wasn't nearly 40. Now I am.
  4. Job Hunting

    Agreed. It often means they're just going through the motions to show due diligence before giving the job to someone they know - who clearly was the best for the role, as no-one had the required experience etc. etc. etc. blah blah
  5. Job Hunting

    I hear you. However, I just rely on one or two agents that I trust and knowing people. I think the last job that I got from a CV was in 2000, since then it's just been a good relationship with a person at an agency who isn't a dick and knows me, and contacts that I've since made. I look at the job market now and really do feel sorry for people coming out of school/university and having to go through that whole rigmarole.

    I'm looking forward to this. Only heard about it about a week ago, and read the synopsis, but reading what you said makes me all the more excited. Jan 17th in the UK!

    Real-time updates to wikipedia from unregistered users. Pretty mesmerising!
  10. Meeting people from the internet is weird

    During the earlyish (pre-teen I suppose to anthropomorphosise) days of the WWW ('93) I used to spent a lot of time on the online real-time 'talkers' based on the Ew-too code. Called Foothills, Surfers and a myriad of others, but those were the two I hung around on. Foothills was US based, Surfers UK. Anyway, it was really cool as I got to talk to actual people around the world! So there were a couple of meets organised, and as Reading University had a fairly large Surfers presence, the first meet was held there. I think around 30 people made it down/up/across. That was pretty weird, as you may imagine it was mostly geeky types that turned up. I found it all very uncomfortable in the main, trying to get along with people IRL when previously it was so easy to do so in text form. There was a lot of posturing and geeky showing off. Not much fun. Now I'm a bit older, I can appreciate meeting folk from the internet - it's a lot more common now, so people have got used to doing it and 'know' how to behave. If you follow.
