FWIW, I'm told the economy is actually good for job hunters right now. We laid off four engineers two weeks ago and two got jobs immediately, and the other two are interviewing and have had offers.(Not bad for low-performers, eh?)

Did you watch the actual game? The second half (other than the power outage) was really exciting!
I thought it was a good game and I really didn't have a horse in the race. I didn't care who won.

The power outage gave me time to do my usual things. Normally when i watch anything on TV I use the commercial time to stick a load of laundry in, do some dishes, or whatever.

As i'm watching the super bowl I didn't know what to do since the commercials are part of the whole experience and you don't want to miss those. I don't have Uverse or DVR so I could pause life TV.

Does anyone here use Google Chrome? Because suddenly, my google chrome is giving me repetitive, annoying malware warnings instead of taking me to pages, including this one.
Yes! Me, too. It's driving me nuts.

Sorry about that Tonka. That sucks. It's one thing if you get to pick to leave, quite another when they tell you that you have to go.

That stinks, Tonka, sorry. Good luck with the hunt.

That sucks, man. But it seems like you got the skills that are in demand, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Thanks. I'm glad to know it was actually nothing. It's nice to know that Google Chrome is another layer of protection, too.

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.

Everything has some sort of covert agenda with you.
