Well, things are about to really suck for me. Just got the official announcement than my company is being sold. The new owners central office is out West. Many of their job functions are centralized at their HQ. Mine is likely one of those. So it looks like Tonka needs to touch up his 11 year old resume, gussy up his LinkedIn account, and start brushing up on his interview skills.
That sucks, man. But it seems like you got the skills that are in demand, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Or maybe you don't have one? Your simple mind just spews venom when you have nothing intelligible to say.

And good luck Tonka. I do not share Red's enthusiasm that the market is prime for job seekers. I've been looking for a new job for a while now and nothing, nadda, zip.

Also, it hasn't happened to me in a little while now,like half an hour, and it was happening constantly before.

I didn't say it was "prime" for job hunting, only that it was good. I think there's a big difference between those two terms.

I wouldn't even say it was good. The national unemployment rate jumped by .2% last month.

Maybe that was part of it, maybe not. But the momentum sure changed. What was looking like a blow out in the first half, turned out to be a very tight game in the second half. Coincidence? Perhaps. But when you consider all the money and betting involved, it looks like a pretty suspicious one.

I wasn't even thinking of the Mob's influence. I should have known better.

No, but today you seem to be speaking in terms of conspiracies and secret agendas.

History and science meet. So cool that they were able to figure it out:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/telegraph-...

"The forensic dramas that have become so popular on our TV screens in recent years have whetted the publicís appetite for this particularly morbid line in detective work, but the discovery of the skeleton of Richard III beneath a Leicester car park trumps any work of fiction...

The University of Leicester, whose coup this is, used archeology, genealogical research, carbon dating and DNA-matching to conclude that the huddled skeleton with a twisted spine and severe head injuries is, beyond reasonable doubt, that of the last monarch of the House of York."
