the world gets smaller all the time
So, one of my Irregular Readers (hi, Gregbo!) alerted me to the following URL: http://research.compaq.com/wrl/jobs/sys_admin_job.html

The humor here is that when I was first hired at AV, I was hired by WRL, and worked there until AV got big enough to require its own offices and machine room. I know the person who's accepting the resumes on this one. So I've dropped him a note.

[Update: response back in 30 seconds: "We are currently still in a hiring freeze but will keep you in mind if it ever lifts." Ah, well, it's nice to get a response back from an actual human being, unlike most email contacts via websites.]

(Separately and irrelevantly, I wish the fucking telemarketers would bug OFF. I am tired of the phone ringing every 20 minutes, and answering it only to get dead air. It just rang again....)

Current Mood: amusedamused

Stopping Telemarketers

The thing to say is "Please put me on your 'do not call' list"
and they're required by law to do so, and not call you again
(it may take 30-60 days). Over time, the number of calls will
dwindle, or so I've found.

Re: Stopping Telemarketers

I do that when I get an actual real live human trying to sell me things. These calls are invariably followed by dead air, or the sounds of a boiler room in operation. elflet assures me that they'll pick up eventually, but I dislike hanging around and waiting to be sold something.
