Chad has a microsoft interview today. The people in Wenatchee more or less just jerked him around. I've got my fingers crossed for him for the microsoft gig... but it ensures that within the next year, he'll be unemployed again.

MS used to have a bad habit of treating their contractors like actual MS employess (except they got paid overtime). He worked there before for a ... uhmm a year and a half? Two years?
Their rules actually entail that a contractor can only be contracted for X number of days and then not again for another X number of days. So, now that there's been a class action suit and so forth, they've become rather fastidious about their employment of contractors and they follow *all* the rules now.

But still. I hope he gets the job. But if he doesn't, things are still looking up.

I don't like my communities.
I need new ones I think.
Or ... I need a life. Whichever happens first.
