Will Studiously Ignore Blog For Food

Today, the club gains another member. I have been downsized, rendered superfluous, liquidated, declared surplus and kicked to the curb. Yep, another blogger laid off. At least I'm in good company.

I kinda saw this coming, felt the axe poised above my career's neck, but it managed to surprise me nonetheless. It was an amicable break, no rancor or bruised feelings, and I've got some contract work lined up to tide me over for a bit. Still, I'm kinda bummed.

You'll notice, maybe, possibly, that there's a PayPal button down there near the bottom. I feel like pounded shit for mentioning it, but there it is. However, if you're in a giving mood, go hit Andy's up before mine. He's got more mouths to feed.

Finally, the thought that's been on all of our minds: Will this lack of employment lead to greater blog activity? Beats the hell out of me. We'll see how it goes.

Wish me luck over the next month or two. This has the potential to get very interesting.

What the fuck? This is---fuck.

OK, you guys have to start getting jobs.

If there's anything I can do, please let me know.

Jesus, does blogging lead to unemployment? This totally sucks, especially since we'll be looking at some of the same jobs.

Zomby, here's what you can do: don't lose your job. Someone has to be able to buy the beer around here.

No shit. I better stop blogging.

Welcome to the club, my friend.

Well goddamn.

Need I mention we'll be getting you SERIOUSLY drunk next week?

hmmm...My faith in the Denver job market just keeps increasing.

Sorry Matt, it's a shitty club to be a part of.

My new theory is that bloggers will become the artists of past centuries, toiling in obscurity and poverty until well past death. A hundred years from now some schmuck will be on the Antiques Roadshow with an ancient server chock full of valuable commentary on the early 21st century. He'll be shocked, shocked to learn that it is worth hundreds of Intergalactic Credits!

Sorry to hear it Matt. This is getting scary.

Maybe you guys should form your own company. To ...

Try temp or contract. Not great, but it generally pays the bills.

Very sorry to be welcoming you into this apparently not-so-exclusive club. Hope that you'll find something quickly.

Guess they got you after getting me! I must have been contagious or something! If you are still learning Java (or any other language) feel free to ask questions! We'll get together for a beer and commiserate!

Ugh, Matt.... makes me glad I'm still in school (that would be the easy way out of getting a job, wouldn't it?). Maybe I can teach you some physics... no, wait, that wouldn't help ;-). You know, DU is a private school, so they have lots of money. I've attached a link. I hope all is well (aside from the big, glaring, unfortunate joblessness thing). Let me know if we can help.

You have a very thorough site. You are to be commended for all of the information you have made available to us the searchers. I didn't find any info on my ancestors, but I still enjoyed looking around
