feedbot: << Bimbo.Club -- Philosophical Transactions. For the months of January, February and March, 1714 - Part IV. [01:52]
Mocky: nicoleci, thx. I get good interest from the resume so I can't blame that. Just gotta keep with the crank winding. [10:23]
diana_coman: Mocky, I'd expect nothing really moves at this time of the year really but anyway, for my curiosity: what gives then if "good interest" but no job? [11:14]
Mocky: the resume gets me interviews. if I wasn't getting interviews I'd worry more about the resume. [11:18]
diana_coman: ah, "good" in the sense of amount [11:26]
feedbot: << Bingology - BingoBoingo's Blog -- Peso Watch December 2018 [12:03]
feedbot: << Qntra -- Japan Ramps Up Military Spending As USG Turns Out To Be Inadequate Provider Of Security [12:20]
mircea_popescu: impossible to fucking evaluate, this. "the resume is getting me interviews [with the sort of people it gets me interviews with while not getting me interviews with the sort of people it doesn't get me interviews with. what am i to do ?]". [13:36]
mircea_popescu: not even saying there IS something you could do, at that. what you don't know is what you don't know. [13:36]
billymg: post containing vpatch for mp-wp footnotes and text-selection [13:50]
billymg: review/feedback comments welcome and appreciated [13:50]
mircea_popescu: o hey, check him out. [13:58]
mircea_popescu: meanwhile in better living through technology : illo tempore i had bought a tin of (actually very delicious) instant mint cocoa. cuz we were doing the whole check out the wonder of colonial goodies, and we pretty much brought all the britt things (fine brand of local chocolateria). [14:17]
mircea_popescu: yet there it sat, because really, who the hell drinks instant cocoa. until a few months ago, i can't even recall when, we bought a popsicle kit. which, you know, take bimbos out to plastic joystore, what are you going to end up with, makeshift dildos and popsicle sets. [14:17]
mircea_popescu: at which point our story starts to flesh out : one day in recent memory i tried out this popsicle stick on apple juice, and holy hell it's great. so now in an exploration mood, i tried out the cocoa in them, and OMFG, excellent icecream! [14:18]
mircea_popescu: BUT THEN!!! i had some raisins marinating in [the world's finest] rum overnight for hanbot's cozonac making and of course there were leftovers, and what can you do, they went into the batch of mint cocoa popsicles being brewed. [14:19]
mircea_popescu: which OMFG MINT CHOCOLATE RUM RAISIN! [14:19]
diana_coman: basically you're spoiling good rum over there! [14:45]
diana_coman: billymg, looks good perhaps mirror the whole mp-wp tree somewhere as you seem to be working on mp-wp? [14:45]
mircea_popescu: no, this is a legitimate function of rum! [14:46]
diana_coman: legitimate(f(rum),household)! [14:49]

lobbes: << just to clarify, lobbesbot atm only downloads the archives ~from (I.e. when croaks we will have the archive ~history~ but no means of archiving going forward) [17:57]
a111: Logged on 2018-12-28 01:51 mircea_popescu: for crying out loud, a virtual machine running firefox just to do what lobbesbot does atm in case croaks ?! [17:57]
lobbes: And while I will continue the above described archive process, right now I have too many irons in fire to work on making a proper substitute. (Imo, this'd be a perfect area for an hero to step in) [17:57]
lobbes: << Mocky, if you feel like moving to the cardboard-cutout city of charlotte there's a glut of 'high paying' 'move these meaningless bits around for robo hitler' jobs . If you want I can give you a recruiter contact that worked for me [17:58]
a111: Logged on 2018-12-31 03:42 Mocky: I think my employability is pretty close to epsilon. I may end up removing asbestos for 18 bucks an hour. This is going to be a setback. [17:58]
Mocky: i've just started looking in charlotte recently lobbes. Other than passing on your resume if you're deemed worth, not sure a recruiter ever does anything on behalf of the the candidate [23:15]
