Firefox.. I love you but why do you eat my memory? Has nobody found a memory leak in Firefox and maybe ummm fixed it? Yeessshh. With IE7 rendering much better these days I may have to revisit it.. maybe..
The Job search continues.. To be totally honest I have really only taken like 2-3 days off to walk in the woods.. The rest of the time I have been doing a day-to-day contracting making 75/hr and working something like 33-40 hours a week. So basically taking home about 4K more than my previous position that I hated. I know some of my annonymous readers were concerned and I did not want them staying up at night unable to sleep because of their fear for my well being.
I got a good lead this morning. A company is hiring application developers. The rate is 82/hr and the commute is probably going to be a solid hour. No traffic though. It is also more in the application development field instead of web development which I enjoy alot more. The extra seven bucks an hour is not bad either.
The other stop-gap gig I have a chance at is a quickie with an old employer. The rate is 110/hr but it is only for two weeks. I am not sure if that is going to materialize or not. We will have to wait and see.
I do not think any amount of money I make will ever be enough for my wife. She really does not realize that most people in my position are making 40-60 an hour and plenty happy with it. Oh well.. One bad decision, a couple great kids, and life goes on.
I think Payton Manning MUST lose the Super Bowl. I find it too humerous that he has every record except a Super Bowl ring and alot of joy and laughter will go out of my life if he actually wins. Smokkee.. make sure you root for Payton!!!!
I hope to be back on the Poker tables soon.. probably in May or something.. Until then peace.
