2746  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: So I'm in need of a job, really bad. on: May 12, 2011, 11:34:21 PM
I've been trying to keep my information regarding personal stuff to a minimum, but screw it, I guess I could elaborate. I work at radioshack right now, a sales associate. Now if I actually worked off of commision, and a decent percentage at that rate, I'd complain less, but sadly, it's not the case. Minimum wage, lack of hours, and making money only off cellular phone sales and contract signings makes it STUPIDLY hard to call the job decent, but thenthere's the fact that I've become the resident handyman, fixing minor carpentry problems like loose hinges on doors, drilling holes through display tanks and such for cluttered cables from poor installation done by asshats, hell I've had to repair the toilet on more than one occasion. My terms of hiring doesn't call for any of this, but it seems to be a standard amongst the hired help. I've brought it up to my boss, but he says it's out of his hands, and complaining to the hire ups gets me nowhere, so basically, I keep complaining and hope for a change. Of course, the other problem comes in that my hours just suck now, having gotten 2 days for the week at 4 hours a day. 7 day week, I worked 8 hours for the week. Sad huh?


I'm just about to go for my security license and be done with it. My buddy is getting steady work and shittons of overtime (last 3 weeks he's put in 70 hours each week, 30 OT), and he basically sits on his ass for hours on end. I figure I'll toy with that, maybe go for my firearms license, and go for an armed guard type deal. Just trying to play with ideas before I do anything.

I'm 25, and school's not really an option. It's not that I haven't been looking for a new job, it's that I'm trying to get an idea of what to start looking for when my new I.D. comes in. Kind of have a plan of attack if you will. I really can't do much til I get my I.D. anyway (long story short, I let my old one expire fully, no good anymore), so asking for information is pretty much the extent of my searching for now.

I've been enjoying the replies thus far, but the actual responses, sadly, I've tried looking into. Most of em (all of em) require a driver's license that I don't have yet (I know, terrible of me). I may try and get the stupid license and be done with it instead, but til then anything that requires driving is a no go.

Who'd have thought that being a geek squad installer would require me needing a driver's license honestly?
2749  The Rest / General Discussions / So I'm in need of a job, really bad. on: May 11, 2011, 02:28:39 AM
As the topic suggests, I am currently fed up with my horrendous job and need a new one. Asking people for opinions always leads to a decent idea or two, so here we go.

I've got experience in home theater installation and professional audio video installation.
I've dabbled in computers, but nothing like programming or web design, but have a knack for all things tech so can learn.
I'm a heavy laborer, good with lifting and moving big objects.
I'm fairly opinionated, and good at writing about it, as well as being a generally good writer overall.
I'm good at speaking to people, as well as explaining directions and instructions in a very easy to understand way.
I'm good at organization, able to look at a large quantity of objects and see them in a more sensible pattern.

These are the most obvious qualities I can come up with, so if anyone has a suggestion, I'm all ears.

(the occasional wiseass joke will be allowed too, as honestly, I'm so fed up with my job that I could use the humor)

I'm eagerly awaiting a new PSP firmware update removing skype from the useable functions, lol.

Idk what to make of it, really. Does it mean that my future 360 update will include making phone calls now? Sounds like the guys in the article pegged it right, MS has so much money they don't know what to do with it all.
2752  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: May 05, 2011, 02:14:48 PM
See, we can rationalize this all we want, but the masses are totally buying into this now. "Sony got attacked by anonymous, and hey they hacked Sony a couple weeks ago, so it must be true now." Sony's managing to take this huge fuckup of theirs and spin it into positive P.R., the masses are eating it up. I walked into radioshack monday (before this was announced, the whole anonymous tagling on SoE servers), and someone was talking about how Sony's "Fighting the good fight" against those hackers. 3 people jumped into the convo (one being my coworker) and started chanting Sony. I had to tell them to start looking into their information better, which to me being labeled a 360 fanboy (lol failbox).

People are fucking idiots.
2753  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead. on: May 05, 2011, 02:07:05 PM
I'm actually thinking that he is not really dead to be honest,  They now refuse to release the picture of Bin Laden?  Kinda strange how the entire world wants to see it.  Plus, I believe I remember hearing back around 2003/2005 that there were people getting operations that made them look exactly like Bin Laden and Hussein.  Yeah, they said the used the DNA of his dead sister to confirm that it was Bin Laden and the fact that he was in a mansion?  WTF, if it was that easy, why didn't they find him back in 2001?  I call major bullshit on this one and I don't care if anyone disagrees.  No, i'm no conspiracy theorist and saying how this is what happened, blah blah blah. I just think we are being lied to or at least not telling us everything on this one.  I want to see a picture of his face blown off like was described in the news reports.
They won't release the picture because apparently, many human rights groups feel it's sadistic and disgraceful. Hell I'm glad they won't release it, it's like rubbing salt in an open wound. We've already got the most rambunctious morons in the world (the U.S.) screaming praises that he's dead, not realizing that this was the same reaction his group of misfits had when they blew up the WTC back oh so long ago. Pot, kettle, burnt steel much?

Osama needed to be killed, he was a lunatic and a madman, and above all else, a murderous fiend. Death, however, shouldn't be celebrated. It could have easily been the special forces unit that assaulted his hideout that bit the bullet instead. We should be happy they made it out alive, and that maybe there will be some room to fix the mess he (bin laden) created now.
2754  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead. on: May 03, 2011, 10:53:41 PM
I blame the lack of PSN on Osama's death. This is what happens when people get bored and don't have video games to play online. When you can't kill shit in CoD, you kill it IRL.
2755  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead. on: May 03, 2011, 04:35:20 PM
All you need is a witty closer like "We got him, everyone. God bless us all", and then a small catwalk to walk off of while playing Guile's theme.
2756  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Osama Bin Laden is dead. on: May 02, 2011, 04:07:07 PM
CDFN: If you are reffering to me not directly linking him to the page I way talking about, I chose to put the extra effort in for him so he wouldn't have had to sift through the other posts. But he knew what I was talking about anyway so it's all pointless :P

If you are just meaning in general, I'm hurt. I thought we got along good ;_;



I went through the trouble of finding the link and then I saw your post with the quote, rendering my hard work completely useless, that's why you suck.
Guys, I'm just touched that you tried that hard to make fun of me. I'm so moved, I could cry.

I say we start taking bets on the next target of terrorism. 30 bucks on the statue of liberty.

Loser

If it is the Statue of Liberty I fully expect D. tnegA to be prepared to sweep into action in the heroic way he always dreamed.
I second this fully!

2759  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should Random Battles Be Done Away With? on: May 01, 2011, 11:21:59 PM
I like it in games like FFXII (one of the 2 things in the game I liked actually) and Infinite Undiscovery where you can have your weapons drawn and prowl for monsters, or put them away for quicker traveling speed. Nothing wrong with a random fight mind you, just I really thought the method used in both of those AWFUL games was pretty cool.

And they said Obama wasn't getting anything done, pshaw.
