After eight years with the company, I've been laid off. They did an across the board cut - even in groups that were *making money* (like mine). Shit. Worst economy since the Great Depression and I'm looking for a job.

Know anyone who is looking for a Unix SysAdmin?

Thanks for the hug and the rose! I have a prospect but am trying not to bank on it. The high tech industry is really in the dumper at the moment. On the good side, my GF still has a job.

BTW, I still want you to paint the lighter! :)

I can imagine. I was going to grab a seasonal job but the places I prefer are not hiring this time. Plus I read that many people who got laid off are grabbing the temp jobs left and right.

:hug:

Well im not really in the industry if im not working lol. But i am a camera operator most of the time for video / film productions. Also do photography. I am moving to LA here next month hopefully.

That's what I thought from your journals. Camera operator is a flood and famine kind of job, right? If you're in a famine, you must be part of the industry! :)

Ya that is true :) , I have not had much luck in awhile. I am trying to move to LA by the end of the year but that is not going so well lol. I got just enough money to get there just i won't have a place to stay lol.
