  1. So about 5 months ago, I picked up a job in tech support for a software company. Just got word from the programming manager that they want to hire me to the junior development team! I still have no idea what I'm doing, but they want me to familiarize myself with SQL, C#, MVC, etc. by next year. I'm super excited. I know yall dont give a fuck but this is awesome news for me.

      @GarrettChan Geek Squad has such a bad reputation in our country because some Best Buys hire idiots who don't know what they're doing. We also had stupid deadlines we had to meet by corporate and a lot of super strict SOP where there was stuff we couldn't do. I remember I got written up for opening a laptop to get the HDD out and check for data because I used a pry tool that wasn't "Geek Squad approved". I can't complain though because it got me the professional experience I needed for this job. 


      Not sure what you're doing for work right now but it might be worth looking into if you're into that shit. It's a super easy start.

      LOL! There's a tractor mechanic who lives near my parents' farm... On his door, he has a sign that reads:


      $50 to fix your tractor

      $60 if you watch

      $80 if you worked on it first


      Not really related... just thought of it because you mentioned fixing your own computer. :-P

      Hmm... Interesting, so I should probably stick to fixing my computer by myself. I don't have a job right now since I'm still in school. I am going to look for one in the next year. Well, I think my 2.5 year experience of Java and DB related stuff can help me pretty well in looking for a job in California Bay Area.
